Не для всех, только для выносливых

Очень интересный забег предлагает Salomon в горах Adirondack. Для того, чтобы принять участие нужно потренироваться в ходьбе в гору. 25 км постоянно вверх. По-другому, это и есть skyrunning. Для тех, кто ещё пока трусит идти вверх за мечтой, предлагается достичь звезду на троих, то есть по 8 км, команда из трёх человек))😊 Мне страшно, но я отважилась на solo. Почему не для всех? Регистрация, дорогие зайки, всегда платная, многие спрашивают про бесплатно)) Это мероприятие интересное , поэтому и цена ему не 5 копеек)). Ну, если на троих, то совсэм, слЮшай,недорого. Если тут отважные? Ау!?

Куда податься в летнюю жару?

Brooklyn Museum

Регистрация закрыта, так как я пока не совсем уверена, что пойду. Five Centuries of European Works on Paper highlights more than a hundred European drawings and prints from our exceptional collection, many of which are on view for the first time in decades. From the remarkably spontaneous etchings of Rembrandt, through the bold graphite lines of Pablo Picasso, the exhibition explores the roles of drawing and printmaking within artists’ practices, encompassing a variety of modes, from studies to finished compositions, and a range of genres, including portraiture, landscape, satire, and abstraction. Working on paper, artists have captured visible and imagined worlds, developed poses and compositions, experimented with materials and techniques, and expressed their personal and political beliefs. Other featured artists include Albrecht Dürer, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Francisco Goya, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Vincent van Gogh, Käthe Kollwitz, and Vasily Kandinsky. https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/rembrandt_picasso Drop by Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra’s new series of intimate pop-up performances, highlighting members and featured musicians as the Orchestra in Residence activates our Beaux-Arts Court with a family-friendly range of classical music from across the globe. Free with Museum admission. https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/calendar/event/pop_up_bso_july_2019 Если я правильно помню, музей позволяет pay as you wish.
