SATURDAY: Sketch the Motion

January 16, 2016

 At the 
Museum of the Moving Image

In a city filled with museums there is nothing like this one.  It is a one of a kind.! 

The Museum of the Moving Image is the country's only museum dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image in all its forms.

If you're a movie buff or a gamer, if you love TV, there is certainly going to be something for you that will inspire a brilliant sketch.  Check out Linda Blair's exorcist mask,  Chewbacca's hairy face.  The museum includes one of the most significant collections of video games and gaming hardware in the world.

What:  Museum of the Moving Image

Where:  36-01 35 Avenue,  Astoria, NY (see map below)

When:  They open at 11:30.  Isn't that a reasonable time?

Lunch:  No lunch - We're sketching through. Since we're starting late there's no break for lunch.  Maybe bring a power bar to get you through until Show and Tell.

Show and Tell:  3:15 off to Sunswick located at 3502 35th St to share drawings, good stories and a beer or wine if you're so inclined.

How:  Subway -
  The E, M or R train to Steinway Street or
  take the N or Q train to 36th Avenue

  1. Mark... Will you be at this Sketchcrawl? I'm in town and there is a possibility that I can come.....

  2. New to NYC, almost (but not quite) as new to urban sketching, wish I could make it to this. Hopefully next time... and hopefully next time is soon!
