Calling all art lovers for this exhibition, which The New York Times described as "a curatorial coup."

"[A] monument to a monument. With more than 200 works, and a core group of 133 drawings by the beyond-famous artist — the largest number ever assembled — on loan from some 50 front-rank collections ... More important, it’s an art historical tour de force: a panoptic view of a titanic career as recorded in the most fragile of media — paper, chalk, and ink." 

The exhibition is a "one-stop event with a non-extendable three-month run, which is the maximum exposure to light, even at dusk-level, that the drawings can safely stand. Once the show’s done, the likelihood of there being another on its scale within the lifetime of anyone reading these words is slim."

I'm an ex-New Yorker, so I know the city well.  In fact I lived down the street from the Met.  We can hit MoMA, the Guggenheim, etc. and of course, plenty else to see and do.  ; )  Hoping this travel idea will lure those of you needing a terrific break from the winter doldrums!  I'm thinking 7-10 days would be great. I'm flexible in dates but please note the exhibition ends Feb. 13.
