The Contortionist at Amercas Society

New York City, an international fairytale city, ushers in autumn on a high note of magical happenings with cultural digs to art venues, an artistic wonderland and amazing storytellers right here in the Big Apple, the place to be in September. Here’s the scoop!!!

Americas Society in collaboration with Museo del Arte de Lima presents, “The History of the Jequetepeque Valley” showcasing Pre-Columbian art from the north coast of Peru. Amazing, only in New York my friends, the exhibit represents 3,000 years of the region’s cultural history. A rare opportunity to view the diverse artistic styles employed by the various societies that occupied the valley with ceramic traditions, in addition to textile and metal objects. Some items exhibit a whimsicality and the spirit of fantasy figures. Till Oct 23, 680 Park Ave. at 68th St.
