At that time, the venue quickly earned its moniker as the “Jewel of the Village” among its rebellious clientele. Fast-forward to now, 130 years since its inception, and Webster Hall is a successful concert venue with a thriving nightlife scene that’s thoroughly modern (think Red Bull & Vodkas with EDM).

January 1 - February 7

Becoming Jewish: Warhol’s Liz and Marilyn presents an interesting point of view: the exhibit chronicles Andy Warhol’s chronicling of nascent American tabloids from the 1960s: specifically, the private lives of two on-screen sirens. While both Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor’s love lives were explored and exploited by would-be journalists, both women managed to keep one side of their private lives quieter—converting to Judaism. Warhol’s portraits of the two actresses cemented their status as the most glamorous women of their era.…
