1. Lunar New Year Crawl
Restaurants Online, Until Feb 28 2021
It has been a hard year for most Asian-owned businesses across NYC because of the pandemic and the racism and xenophobia surrounding it. But Lunar New Year is here—a usually joyous and festive time—so Send Chinatown Love is hosting a digital neighborhood crawl to help support Asian-owned businesses. For the entire month of February, you can use receipts from takeout/delivery at participating businesses or receipts from donations to any of these businesses to put into your “Passport to Lunar New Year.” For ever three receipts, you’re entered into a raffle for prizes.
2. Augmented reality versions of Met masterpieces
The Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) just launched a new interactive virtual art exhibit in partnership with Verizon featuring augmented reality versions of some of the most iconic masterpieces to ever be displayed at the museum. In total, The Met Unframed features a dozen one-of-a-kind digitally rendered galleries and almost 50 works of art from across the museum’s collection. “At a time when access to one of the world’s greatest art collections is limited, [this experience] brings a creatively reimagined Met experience to people wherever they are,” reads the destination’s official press release. “Visitors” will first be treated to an intricately detailed rendering of the Met’s famous Great Hall and will then be able to proceed to admiring works that include Jackson Pollock’s Autumn Rhythm, Margareta Haverman’s Vase of Flowers, Vincent Van Gogh’s Wheatfield with Cypresses and Rembrandt van Rijn’s Self Portrait, among others.
