See “Gravity and Grace” at the Brooklyn Museum

A trip to the Brooklyn Museum is never the wrong thing to do, whether you’re on a date or not. We’d argue, though, that it’s an especially good idea this summer. Why? Well, air conditioning is a significant factor (as is proximity to the Botanic Gardens), but there’s also “Gravity and Grace,” El Anatsui’s show of intricate, large-scale installations and sculptures, which are both breathtaking and completely accessible. The museum is also continuing their show of John Singer Sargent watercolors through the end of July, which, romantic! And, if we’re being cynical, not a bad way to weed out the kind of people who’ll use this as an opportunity to lecture you about Art. Those are not people you want to be dating.
