When the Curtain Never Comes Down

American Folk Art Museum : 12:00 p.m. daily until July 5

This fresh collection of outsider art explores ritual, self-promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self-taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd.

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 14

The final season of Mad Men debuted on April 5, and we’ll have to say goodbye, after eight years, to all the smoking, drinking, striving, cheating, casual sexism, and slick mid-century style of Don Draper and his pals. But now the Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a tribute to the... More >>

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until July 19

In 1955, the MoMA exhibited a ten-year survey called "Latin American Architecture Since 1945." You can imagine how much building in Latin America has expanded, parsed down, twisted, and gone beyond the imaginations of anybody who saw that original exhibit 60 years ago. Latin America in... More >>

Mother's Day at MoMA

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 9:00 a.m. May 10

The Drawing Center : 12:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28
