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 youâ€™re in Queens anyways, you HAVE to take the 7 train to Sripraphai, one of New Yorkâ€™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.
