Culture Vulture: Sunday afternoon at the Morgan Library

January 31, 2021

On a museumgoing roll, Andy and I met our friend Robert at the Morgan Library as a light snowfall dusted the city. I was keen to see “David Hockney: Drawing From Life, a smartly curated show focusing on the British artist’s drawings over several decades of a small handful of friends (his early boyfriend Gregory Evans, his dear friend Celia Birtwell who designed clothes for the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, art dealer Maurice Payne, plus self-portraits) and the final day of “Betye Saar: Call and Response.” When we walked in, we heard live music: a (masked) duo playing violin and cello. After we checked out the two exhibitions, we hung out in the East Room, where we happened to witness a marriage proposal.
