Night at the Museums

Downtown has one of the most diverse and concentrated groups of culturally significant institutions in the world, and Night at the Museums is the signature event each year that showcases the breadth of all it has to offer. Now in its fifth year, the event boasts participation from 14 organizations offering free admission and a slate of special programming, performances, exhibitions and tours. Night at the Museums takes place Tuesday, June 19, from 4–8 p.m. and is hosted by the Downtown Cultural Association as part of River To River Festival 2018, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s annual summer arts festival. Night at the Museums welcomes visitors of all ages to spend a summer evening exploring New York City’s history and heritages. In celebration of Downtown also as a premier dining destination, this summer’s Get Low campaign, sponsored by the Downtown Alliance, offers restaurant goers a 20 percent discount at a range of restaurants in the area on summer Tuesdays, so they can taste their way through Lower Manhattan all season.

Moniker International Art Fair

This May 3 – 6, Moniker Art Fair makes its New York debut, welcoming international and local collectors to a four-day celebration of New Contemporary Art at Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, Brooklyn. With a proven track record of delivering a rich and varied programme in London, UK since 2010, Moniker International Art Fair has established itself as the world’s leading contemporary art fair with its roots embedded in urban culture. The Fair rallies against the familiar grind of the art fair season with a curated, experiential and immersive focus, creating unique settings for the display of artists and their work. This May, Moniker will see the imposing, cavernous space of Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse transformed into a curated 27 stand exhibition, echoing the subversive edge and outsider-ethos at the core of the urban art scene, and just like a fun fair, visitor engagement and interaction is encouraged. Moniker aims to spotlight emerging and established talent from a burgeoning and increasingly diverse contemporary art movement forged by its subversive and innovative spirit, attracting some of the most talked about artists, galleries and collectors from the finer side of the urban art movement.
