New York City museums' summer programs: MoMA, the Whitney, Jewish Museum, more – New York News

Museums are the jewels in New York City’s cultural crown, no matter the season. But there’s an extra sparkle that comes with summer, emanating from new exhibitions, outdoor spaces and art, special events or the lure of air-conditioned enlightenment. The institutions will join together once again this year for an annual summer highlight, the Museum Mile Festival, on June 13, when many will keep their doors open late and admission free from 6 to 9 p.m. A block party along Fifth Avenue that evening will include face painting, chalk drawing, live music and more. Here are some more suggestions for your summer itinerary.

This year marks a century since the United States entered World War I, and you’ll have a chance to explore how American artists reacted to the conflict with “World War I Beyond the Trenches” (May 26-Sept. 3), featuring artwork by John Singer Sargent, Georgia O’Keeffe and others, as well as toys and posters. The New-York Historical Society demonstrates its range when it opens “Eloise at the Museum” (pictured; June 30-Oct. 9), a closer look at the minds, sketches and manuscripts behind the picture-book heroine. The “Eloise” books were written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight.
