Yogurt Culture is a monthly feature, highlighting interesting cultural events here in New York City, its environs, other cities in the US, and abroad. Like yogurt, this department will come in many flavors-- something for everybody, we hope, and like yogurt, culture's good for you!


Well kids, even though the weather is getting real nice and you want to be outdoors, you need alternative plans in case you get rained out of your outdoor activities. So once again we’ve assembled a selection of cultural delights for your enjoyment.

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

    The Middle Ages A-Go-Go! That’s not really the title, but there are 3 exhibitions devoted to this truly fascinating age. The exhibits are:

    Prayer Book for a Queen: The Hours of Jeanne d’Evreux. Through August 29.

Devotions and Diversions: Prints and Books from the Late Middle Ages in Northern Europe. Through August 29.

Mirror of the Medieval World -- 300 works of art acquired from 1977 to the present. Through July 4.

Located at 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street.


  • William Doyle Galleries, New York

Victorian Furniture and Decorations. This auction includes paintings, prints, porcelain, silver and rugs. Immerse yourself in some Victoriana. Maybe you’ll find a whip from a Victorian flagellation house that will be an endless source of conversation picker uppers. Exhibition 6/16, 6/19, 6/20, Auction 6/22.

Located at 175 East 87th Street.

  • The Museum of the City of New York, New York

Paul Robeson: Artist and Citizen. Through September 5. Come see this multimedia exhibition of the great actor and activist Paul Robeson – what he a voice he had! Magnificent. Robeson’s story is a very interesting one, and sad; the government never got off his back because of his politics. Eventually he left the country when he just couldn’t take it anymore.

Younger than Springtime: Celebrating 50 Years of South Pacific. Through October 10.

Located at 1220 Fifth Avenue.


  • The Asia Society, New York

Japanese Film Festival for the month of June, and a presentation of Australian short films on June 10. Sounds fab.

Located at 725 Park Avenue (70th Street).


  • Japan Society, New York

Lectures, films and gallery events for the month of June, spanning history and modern cultural and pop-culture trends.

Located at 333 East 47th Street.


  • The Jewish Museum, New York

Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture. Through September 9. We recommended this one last month for Mother’s Day – it goes ditto for dad!

Located at 1109 Fifth Avenue (92nd Street).


  • New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans

Degas and New Orleans: A French Impressionist in America. Through August 29. A must see.

Call Ticketmaster at 800.409.9959.


  • Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia

Goya: A New Look at the Spanish Master. Through July 11. If you’re visiting or live in the city of brotherly love don’t miss seeing Goya – one of the all time greats. Philadelphia has a wonderous art collection: the Barnes Collection, the Rodin Museum and much more -- investigate it!

Located at 26th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway.


And on that hot humid day there’s always your local multiplex. We at Fashion Finds are pining for some good old escapism – The Mummy sounds like a possibility. There’s also a new Betrolucci film, Beseiged, but that may not be mindless enough. Enjoy!
