Post image for This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Massive Insects and the Shadow World

This is a low energy week in New York City. Like last week and the week before, there are a handful of arty movies playing around the city. See a documentary about Chinese pollution, a George Kuchar film on the ultra-ordinary, The Royal Tenenbaums, and a documentary on the life of bugs.

If none of this is your bag, we recommend getting out of town. If you haven’t had a chance to get upstate yet, end the week chilling in Storm King with classical music. It’s late August, so treat yourself to art, nature, and free drinks while you still have the chance.
