31 days / 31 exhibitions

Besides the fiery colored leaves, pumpkin flavored everything, cable knit sweaters, and apple picking the fall season has been ripe with noteworthy art exhibitions. In fact there have been so many I decided to conduct a little experiment: 31 days / 31 exhibitions, to see if I could find an exhibition opening for each day of last month. Now, that October has come and gone, faster than a kid’s Halloween candy stash, I have found and chosen 31 exhibitions to share with you.

 

From New York to London, Los Angeles to Philadelphia and everywhere in between I scoured museums to find the best of the best; the most intriguing and critical art exhibitions that you MUST see now. So think of November as “Now”-vember and go check out the landmark Mike Kelley retrospective at MoMA PS1, Paul Klee at the Tate Modern and a rare Vermeer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art along with many more!
