A evening of art in New York City

The Angel Orensanz Foundation wants to invite you to come out and join the 34th annual Museum Mile Festival, beginning June 12th from 6 -9 p.m. On this day Manhattan will proudly close off Fifth Avenue from 82nd street to 105th street to become an afternoon strollers paradise.

With traffic blocked off, the “mile” will become one of New York City‘s biggest and most cultural block parties of the year. The sidewalks will be serenaded with street vendors, art collections, musicians and bands of various backgrounds. Nine of New York’s finest museums will be offering free admission. Many of the museums will also provide fun art related activities for kids such as face painting and chalk drawing.

The festival has a variety of street performers strewn up and down the stretch for the crowd’s entertainment. Over a million people have taken part in this annual celebration and trust us; this is something you wouldn’t want to miss!

The first Museum Mile was in 1978. Since then it has been an event to look forward too every continuing year. So much so that tourists traveling near and far make their way to NYC just for this spectacular event. The museums along this strip are the Guggenheim (88th street), Copper-Hewitt National Museum of design (91st street), National Academy Museum (89th street), The Jewish Museum (92nd street), El Museo del Barrio (104thstreet), The Goethe institute (83rd street), Museum of the City of New York (104th street) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (86th-82nd street).

This remarkable event is free of charge no matter how many magnificent world-class museums you decide to admire. Make sure you stroll the streets, soak up the sun, and absorb all the flavors of art in the atmosphere!
