Ads That Belong in a Museum

The Self-Storage Phenomenon.” Photo: Klaus Pichler / Wien Museum We’ve always considered Manhattan Mini Storage advertising campaigns works of art, and now it is official. On February 14, 2019, a few of our favorite ads debuted as part of the exhibition “Where Things Live. The Self-Storage Phenomenon,” at Wien Museum in Vienna, Austria. The exhibition investigates not only how self-storage providers from across the globe address lack of storage space in cities, but also the universal theme of attachment, particularly to one’s stuff. Its central highlight is a collection of portraits of Vienna’s self-storage users and the ‘treasures’ they store. An exploration of an urban landscape from the Wien Museum exhibit.

We ❤️ February

We love February. Despite its short length and erratic weather happenings, February is for bundling up, braving the elements, and finding things to do from the obvious to the offbeat that could only happen in New York. There is a reason you’ve chosen to live in or close to the greatest city in the world (and it’s not to stay at home on the couch eating those pastel-colored Valentine’s Day heart candies #HEARTYOU). Start the month with Arts Brookfield and a screening of the 1927 crime heist thriller Underworld, part of the Silent Film/Live Music series at Brookfield Place...
