The Museum Museum, Tonight at LaunchPad


Tonight (Friday) at LaunchPad - complete press release below:

CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN: New York City has a world-class set of cultural institutions, but it is widely understood that to take it all in would be a superhuman endeavor. Therefore, The Levys’ Unique New York! is offering, for one night only, the chance to absorb the highest quality exhibits on art, history, science and car service, including a spectacularly unqualified docent-led tour.
LaunchPad will be hosting The Museum Museum, a one-night only curated experience where visitors can explore the microscopic world of amoebas through 2D viewing platforms; where guests will be thrown into the past by the City Reliquary’s traveling suitcase of antiquity; where modern-day curiosity seekers can experience the world-renowned Museum of Car Service, from the inside to the out. The Museum Museum’s main exhibit will be a documentary, The Quest for Cameltoe, featuring Rev Jen, the zany, wry and irreverent Lower East Side Art-Star who may be one of NYC’s last living eccentrics. The Quest for Cameltoe shows Reverend Jen creating mystifying works of art, traveling to exotic European cities, getting sloshed on wine and creating the only Troll Doll Museum in the world.
Doors open at 8pm. The Quest for Cameltoe runs sixty-four minutes and will begin promptly at 9:30pm. Works by TJ Hospodar, Wendy Chan, Jason Thompson, 0h10 M1ke and The City Reliquary. Wine and cheese will be served. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. LaunchPad is located at 721 Franklin Avenue and is accessible via the 2,3,4,5,A,C trains at Franklin Avenue and the Shuttle train at Park Place.
