Join the Jewish Museum and our Museum Mile neighbors for the 45th Annual Museum Mile Festival.

Festival attendees can walk the Mile on Fifth Avenue between 82nd Street and 110th Street while visiting eight of New York City’s finest cultural institutions, all of which are free and open to the public from 6 to 9 pm.   

The institutions participating this year are: The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Neue Galerie New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum; The Jewish Museum; Museum of the City of New York; El Museo del Barrio; and The Africa Center. Additional programming will be presented by (south to north): The Asia Society; Church of the Heavenly Rest; AKC Museum of the Dog; New York Academy of Medicine; and The People’s Bus. Please check each venue's website to learn more about their programming, which will include musical performances and activities for families and adults.

At the Jewish Museum:


Dingonek Street Band will perform three sets (at 6 pm, 7 pm, and 8 pm) outside the Jewish Museum on Fifth Avenue. Presented as part of an ongoing collaboration with Bang on a Can. 

Dingonek Street Band is a Brooklyn-based brass band dedicated to human culture and sonic adventure. Built on the celebratory energy and raw spontaneity of the second-line brass band tradition, Dingonek has created a funky, high-energy party music all its own by absorbing and reworking elements of Afrobeat, Ethio-jazz, punk rock, free jazz, and Balkan brass music.


In a drop-in workshop for all ages, create a playful work of art using a variety of textures and materials inspired by artists in the exhibition After “The Wild”: Contemporary Art from The Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Collection.
