MoMA PS1 presents Nancy Grossman: Heads, a solo exhibition that focuses on the artist’s evocative head sculptures. Nancy Grossman has been making art for more than 50 years and is best known for her leather-wrapped sculptures of heads, which the artist made from the late 1960s through to the 1980s. The exhibition features 14 sculptures featuring a variety of her styles throughout her career. Being that you’re in Queens anyways, you HAVE to take the 7 train to Sripraphai, one of New York’s top Thai restaurants. What makes it better than most is the fact that the ingredients are fresh, and instead of choosing your entree with a choice of meat, they offer a novel sized menu with pics of every dish, most under $10. Once a heavily Irish neighborhood, Saints and Sinners is one of the best looking Irish bars left. Grab a Guinness at the bar or traditional Irish food. If you can, head over to Baruirs in Sunnyside for one of the best cups of coffee in Queens.
