Lisle Richards and Eric Marx, owners and founders of Monarch NYCLisle:
“New Yorkers should head to the "Robert Indiana: Beyond Love" exhibition which opens at the Whitney in late September. The pieces are iconic 1960s Pop Art and it’s a great chance to see his works in person. Art is an important part of the fabric of New York and we’ve aimed to create Monarch, the restaurant we’re opening on West 15th Street, a space where dining and art complement one another.”
Robert Indiana: Beyond Love is open September 26 to January 5, 2014 at The Whitney Museum of American Art
, 945 Madison Avenue (at 75th Street); (212) 570-3600. Eric:
“On September 28 at the Great Lawn in Central Park, there is an incredible concert called the Global Citizens Festival. It’s bringing artists like Stevie Wonder and Kings of Leon together in a campaign to secure new commitments to health, education, and women’s equality around the world. It’s a free concert, but tickets have to be earned by supporting the causes. I’ll be spending the majority of fall at Monarch, but I’m looking forward to taking a night off to support and attend.”
