Resolutions can come and go, but this year there’s one that we’re sticking to – seeing more art in 2017. And we don’t want you to miss out on this, either. That’s why starting today, we’re giving away 3 pairs of tickets to an art museum in your city. Enter for a chance to win below, and check out some tips on how to incorporate more art into your day-to-day – even if you can’t make it to an art museum every weekend.
1. Work an Art Museum into your next Happy Hour
Can’t squeeze in a weekend trip to the museum? From the Guggenheim’s #ArtAfterDark to the Brooklyn Museum’s Art History Happy Hour, many of our favorite museums and galleries offer special after-hours events during the week – perfect for a post-work pick-me-up.
2. Street Art with Google
Some of New York City’s greatest works of art are painted on walls outside for everyone to see (case in point: artist Logan Hick’s mural at Houston & Bowery), and it doesn’t just stop here – Google’s Street Art Project helps us see what street art looks like cities all over the world.
3. Follow Julia Rothman’s Women Who Draw
We’re excited about NYC-based illustrator Julia Rothman’s latest project, Women Who Draw, a directory of female professional illustrators from all over the world. We’ve discovered some new favorite artists here – and we’re sure you’ll find someone who speaks to you, too.
4. Explore The Sketchbook Project
Our old neighbors in Williamsburg have moved to a larger space in the Brooklyn Art Library to house sketchbooks on top of sketchbooks of original artwork from all over the world. If you can’t visit in person, we recommend checking out their digital library or their Instagram feed.
5. Check out our #artistoftheday Series
It’s no secret that we’re huge art nerds at Classic Specs – in fact, we post our daily finds over on our Instagram feed. Follow us to get a fresh #artistoftheday every day.
