There is "Art After Dark" events once a month in N.Y. Guggenheim Museum.

This might seem funny at first, but one must understand that in the last decade not a single art institution has been able to overcome the swift ageing of its audiences, much less bring about their renewal. Museums are attempting to follow the example of the opera and offer the alternative of remote experiences. At the beginning of this year, Google proudly released its Art Project, which lets users virtually walk through and get a high-quality up-close view of galleries and art works at seventeen of the world’s leading art museums. You don’t have to read Walter Benjamin’s essays to understand that a remote or “mediated” art experience cannot replace and can potentially even hinder the direct experience of art. Yet the Metropolitan Opera’s direct broadcasts prove that in this way, you can substantially increase the number of visitors to the opera house, as well as make this type of art accessible to people whose geographic coordinates and available financial resources prevent them from regularly attending the Metropolitan Opera.

If you follow the no less upsetting changes in attendance and financial support at European art institutions, there is no reason to doubt that the coming years will be a great challenge for all of the world’s leading art institutions. A few theoreticians from this field have already expressed the opinion that, in the foreseeable future, a large number of various art institutions will die-off, and only the very largest or the most highly specialized will survive. Until that time, all art institutions will be forced to search for newer and newer ways to preserve their meaning and expand their audiences. And if they want to learn how to do this best, New York is an excellent place to find out.
