    I went to visit the Jewish Museum on the Pay-What-You-Wish Thursday Nights between 5-8pm because I’m a poor college grad starting my life in the city. It’s a great program for those who aren’t able to pay full admission prices but want to appreciate art! Mel Bochner’s “Strong Language” exhibit is a colorful and creative exhibit of how our society uses, represents, depicts language. BIG fan.

    Had a fair time, and went because we felt we had to, being Jewish and near the museum. Some items were incredible and others fairly mundane, but it was great for my kids to see. The docent who gave the tour was just OK. Very nice, but somewhat ill informed on more than a couple of issues. The “kids” section was very small and not appropriate for my 10 year olds and 14 yo. The two special exhibits kept our interest for about 15 minutes. One was called “Primary Structures” and to be honest (coming from a guy who could spend days at MOMA or The Met) was a waste of my time. If you’re the kind of person who can stare at the famous “Blue Panel” painting at the Met and be entranced, then enjoy Primary Structures. The second exhibit was “Mel Bochner:Strong Language”. Again, not my thing at all. A lot of murals with a thesaurus theme and a lot of cursing. Visually interesting, but enough seen if you view 4 or 5 of them.Again, I felt that my kids needed to go and I’m glad we did, but we won’t be back there until maybe next decade.

    One of my favorite small museums. Their exhibitions always have a fascinating intellectual perspective and are well curated. The house’s history makes for an interesting backdrop.

    The Jewish museum is free on saturdays (11-5 pm) and they have a great Art Speigelman exhibition (from the little pailfacekids to the Maus to the New Yorker front), int he 1st floor. The Chagall paintings are in the second floor plus a very cool pop modern fashion expo. The short movies in the sounds expo are worth to watch too ( and only 3 min each.

    Always great shows……..fabulous curatorial program and staff. Yes, there is a great collection of Judaica BUT the shows are generally 20th century.
