The Eve of Porn: Linda Lovelace - Museum of Sex Through December 09, 2014
In 1972, Deep Throat, the tale of a woman whose clitoris was located in the back of her throat, became a trailblazer of the pornographic genre.

Considered "Porn Chic," screenings of Deep Throat were attended by celebrities from Jackie O to Jack Nicholson.

Gilded New York - Museum of the City of New York Through January 04, 2015
Inaugurating the Museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city's visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before.

The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels.
