upcoming exhibitions

While in the hospital, I browsed through several different magazines and was pleased to learn about a few interesting museum exhibitions in NYC. I thought I'd share them with you. I enjoy looking at maps and the artistry of manuscripts, so when I found out about two exhibits revolved around them at The New York Public Library at 42nd Street, I said, "This seems like fun." Treasured Maps: Celebrating The Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division(http://www.nypl.org/research/calendar/exhib/hssl/hsslexhibdesc.cfm?id=384) will be at the Library until April 2006. The Splendor of the Word: Medieval and Renaissance Illuminated Manuscripts at The New York Public Library (http://www.nypl.org/research/calendar/exhib/hssl/hsslexhibdesc.cfm?id=354) will open its doors tomorrow, October 21st, and will continue until February 2006.

The other two exhibitions which caught my attention are at the Brooklyn Museum. The first is called Manufactured Landscapes: The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky and the other is called Tree of Paradise: Jewish Mosaics from the Roman Empire. http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/

I hope to check one of them out this weekend.
