'Bike Sharing' Programs Popping Up All Over Cities

Traffic snarls, vague directions and unexpected one-way streets plague many a city traveler, and put a damper on precious vacation time. Instead of succumbing to road rage, take advantage of the public bike programs springing up in CityPASS destinations across North America. For a fee – $5 per day in Toronto, $6 in Boston and $10 in New York – these programs let you borrow bikes from docking stations strategically located throughout the central district. Designed with city cruising in mind, the bikes generally have rugged step-through frames with baskets or luggage racks, upright handle bars, responsive hand brakes, adjustable seats, three speeds, and the appropriate reflectors and safety lamps. read more »

Gauguin: Metamorphoses Opens at MoMA on March 8

Gauguin: Metamorphoses is the first major monographic exhibition on Paul Gauguin (French, 1848–1903) ever presented at MoMA, and the first major exhibition to focus particularly on the artist’s rare and extraordinary prints and transfer drawings and their relationship to his paintings and his sculptures. Approximately 160 works, including some 130 works on paper and a critical selection of some 30 related paintings and sculptures, will be on view from March 8 through June 8, 2014, in The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art Special Exhibition Gallery. Featuring loans from many different collections—national and international, public and private—the exhibition offers an extraordinary opportunity to see these works brought together. Many have rarely if ever been shown in the United States. read more »
