Egg Rolls, Egg Cream, and Empanadas Festival

The Lower East Side is not just about partying — it actually has an eclectic ethnic community that deserves to be celebrated. The Museum at Eldridge Street hosts this festival on Sunday as a mash-up of the Jewish, Chinese and Puerto Rican tastes, traditions, and sounds that exemplify the neighborhood. Get your three E’s on.

For events to keep you going throughout the month, check out the below:

Summerstage Festival

Every summer, NYC announces an array of performances throughout all five boroughs to enjoy that take place at the various local parks and piers. Most concerts are free, like the MET Opera Series, while other bigger ones usually have a cost, like the Head and the Heart. There’s nothing like an outdoor concert to ring in summer with.

Peter Schoolwerth “Model as Painting”

The Miguel Abreu Gallery in New York is featuring the work of Peter Schoolwerth until June 30. In “Model as Painting,” the works are three-dimensional in order to depict and yet reverse the compression of time and space that is inherent to digital communications. It feels as if the art is coming alive, rather than sitting still beneath the canvas.

 

Anicka Yi “Life is Cheap” at the Guggenheim Museum

The Guggenheim Museum is featuring the “Life is Cheap” exhibit by Anicka Yi until July 5. For this exhibition Yi worked with a team of molecular biologists and forensic chemists to create an installation in which natural and technological forces appear as surging, unruly forms. Visitors are able to generate a sensory immersion that goes beyond visual experience, with an emphasis on smell and its potent link to memory and subjectivity.

NOMOFOMO WHAT: LIFE IS CHEAP. "…worked with a team of molecular biologists and forensic chemists to create an installation in which natural and technological forces appear as surging, unruly forms that are nonetheless clinically contained… a second diorama houses a colony of ants—insects that interest Yi because of their intricate division of labor and matriarchal social structure, as well as the sophisticated olfactory system that guides their behavior". MORE IN STORIES. WHO: Anicka Yi. WHERE: Guggenheim Museum (@guggenheim) 1071 5th Ave. WHEN: 10am to 5:45 pm (7:45 pm on Saturdays). Closed Thursdays. $25 (pay-what-you-wish after 5:45 on Saturdays) FEED INSPIRATION: #anickayi #lifeischeap #guggenheim
