10 Weekend Ideas Under $10: 'Re-Thrifted' at Sacred Gallery, Que Bajo Turns 5, Queens Museum Reopens
We know you've had a busy week, but don't lose steam and sleep the weekend away. That would be tragic. We've got your entire weekend all mapped out with exhibitions, shopping, and more importantly, a killer party.
[Art] Thrift stores are a treasure trove, especially in the art department. Don't believe us? Make your way towards "Re-Thrifted," a group show featuring artwork that has been recycled, reclaimed, and reworked from paintings obtained at thrift shops. They are a thing of true beauty. Gallery opens at noon.
Sacred Gallery in Chinatown, free.
[Art] At Prints Gone Wild!, billed as "NYC's Greatest Affordable Graphic Art Dogpile," Cannonball Press gathers 10 printing presses, studios, and galleries -- each with an arsenal of artists -- in one space for this annual one-night-only blowout sale. Many of the hand-carved woodblock prints range from $20-$50. Drop in to browse, hear some live music, and witness live printing demonstrations. It's like a museum where you can actually afford to buy things. And drink beer.
At 6 p.m., Littlefield, in Brooklyn, free.
[Art] Desert Island presents the Comic Arts Brooklyn, a celebration of comics and cartoons featuring more than 50 artists and publishers. The annual fest, now in its fifth year, includes panels, programs, exhibitions, and an afterparty with live music by Jeff Lewis, The Marcellus Hall Band, and the Susquehanna Industrial Tool and Die Co. Catch Dash Shaw and Limited Animation screening at 8 p.m.
[Shop] What do Helmut Lang, Missoni, Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera, and Rachel Roy have in common? All these luxury brands will be housed inside the Metropolitan Pavilion, with items retailing up to 90 percent off. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be served. Warning: It'll be a mad house, but when is shopping ever chill?
[Recreation] Get in your best downward dog pose. It's yoga time! Enjoy free yoga at Lululemon at various Lululemon locations. We know the location at 75th & Broadway, and Lincoln Center offer free morning classes for sure, but call ahead to make sure.
