The Best Art Dates in NYC This Month

4. Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store andClaes Oldenburg: Mouse Museum/Ray Gun Wing

Location: Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53 Street New York, NY 10019-5497

Instead of attempting to sit through an old black and white film you never wanted to see in the first place, go to the MoMA with your significant other instead. Until August 5, museum goers can relive New York in the '60s through Claes Oldenburg's most famous works. Wanting to detract from the notion of art as "something outside of experience" found only in museums, Oldenburg created sculptures of everyday objects, and even over-sized replicas of burgers, ice cream, fries, and more. Feast your eyes upon his blown up food, then set out for the nearest diner to satisfy your appetite!
