-Tuesday 12/5 - Sea of Light: An Interactive Journey Through Light & Sound (FREE/RSVP needed) - Like no winter light show you will have ever seen before, Sea of Light is an immersive sensory adventure. To mark the launch, they're throwing a party on the cobblestones that’s set to light up even the coldest of December nights. There’ll be live music, free mulled wine and hot chocolate, xylobands (so you can be a part of the light show), and lots more. It’s free to RSVP but tickets are going fast, so reserve yours now.
Don’t forget about these ongoing exhibits:
-Luminaries - Brookfield Place (FREE) - This holiday tradition (live till January 5th) in the heart of Lower Manhattan is built on the season’s traditions of sharing, giving, community, and light. Visitors will be immersed in a canopy of light emanating from hundreds of suspended lanterns. Three Wishing Stations on the ground will allow visitors to “send” a wish to the canopy of lanterns above, translating the wish into a mesmerizing display of lights and colors. For every wish sent by the public during the holiday season, Brookfield will donate $1, up to $25,000, to the GRAMMY Museum’s music education programs.
-Volez, Vogyez, Voyagez - Louis Vuitton (FREE but reservations required) - There are both general and guided tours of this spectacular exhibit from October 27th through January 7th. The showcase, which details the French brand’s roots via trunks, steamer bags and other historic paraphernalia, lands at the former American Stock Exchange building for a nine-week run.
