A glance at the http://www.LarryQualls.blogspot.com blog – the gold standard for what’s happening in art & culture in NYC, published each day early at 7am – reveals the abundance of art that’s a-flowering today as April nears its end. Remember: today MoMA is free from 4-8 thanks to Uniqlo, the Morgan Library is free 7-9, and the Whitney is free from 7-10. Here’s an excerpt from Larry’s blog selected for quality and nearness to most transportation:
