☞ INTRODUCING: Cecil Beaton Exhibit at MCNY

Through February 20th, Cecil Beaton: The New York Years at the Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street. From the 1920s through the '60s, Manhattan's artistic and social circles embraced British-born photographer and designer Cecil Beaton (1904–80). Cecil Beaton: The New York Years brings together extraordinary photographs, drawings, and costumes by Beaton to chronicle his impact on the city's cultural life. Beaton's relentless energy and curiosity spurred him to pursue new fields, from fashion and portrait photography to costume and scenic design for Broadway, ballet, and opera, and to put his own aesthetic stamp on each of these endeavors. Open every day from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM: LINK
