Bands playing at museums are all the rage these days. Wall-rattling live music immersed in rooms of fine art is probably my favorite kind of experiential art. It also happens to be one of the few times that it’s okay to hoot and holler inside of the museum.
On Thurs, June 21st - that’s TONIGHT, folks – the Brooklyn Museum is hosting a ball-slapping, good time of a concert as part of their Audiophile series and I’ve got 2 guest list spots to give away !!!
Retweet for a chance to WIN (@museumbabes)
Doors open at 7pm.
Let’s all go to the (air-conditioned) museum and laugh in the face of 100 degree weather!
BOOK GIVEAWAY CONTEST & INTERVIEW WITH POP PHILOSOPHER ALAIN DE BOTTON
ALAIN DE BOTTON ON MUSEUMS AND ATHEISM
I know what you’re thinking… What does religion have to do with museums, let alone babes?
A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from writer/philosopher Alain de Botton wondering if Babes At The Museum would like to do a giveaway contest for his latest book Religion For Atheists (out March 6th.) He admitted he had a similar affinity for the romantic spell that museums cast on us art-lovers.
In his book, de Botton argues how modern museums fail to tell people why art matters, how religion reminds us of the purpose of art, and how curators should restructure museums in order to better nourish our psychological well-being.
