NYC Events 7/18: MoMA’s Pop Rally; Greenpointers Summer Market; Bohemia and Orthodox Judaism in Art
Another summer weekend with fabulous weather is upon us, and we can’t wait to close our laptops and get out into the city. Start your weekend off right by catching a screening of Primal Heritage, a film exploring the world of Joseph Wolf Grazi, an artist juggling the Bushwick dream with his Orthodox Jewish roots.
On Sunday, get your retail fix on at Greenpointers Summer Market, which will be chock full of artist- and locally designed goods you’ll definitely want in your home. Greenpointers also invites you to sip on Brooklyn Brewery beers and Dandelion Wine sangria while you shop, so if you’re looking to unwind with a drink in addition to some retail therapy, this is your best bet. And once you’ve hit your spending limit, mosey on over to the galleries in the 67 West building for some art… Want more? We’ve got a full list of events after the break.
