It's the end of the fourth annual #MuseumInstaswap and we had a blast at @nypl today! Visit their #Stonewall50 and #WaltWhitman200 exhibitions, check out the rainbow flags at the 42nd Street location, and stop by their #NYPLAfterHours: Pride event tonight (discount code in story). And, and if you live, work, or attend school in New York, make sure you get a free library card!

2019 marks 50 years since the Stonewall Riots. @nypl’s free exhibition, "Love & Resistance: #Stonewall50," takes a look at this pivotal moment in LGBTQ history and the emergence of the modern LGBTQ movement. The exhibition highlights photographs by Kay Tobin Lahusen and Diana Davies—pioneering photojournalists who captured the pivotal events of this era and change the ways LGBTQ people perceived themselves—alongside items from the Library’s vast archival holdings in LGBTQ history.

#MoMAhistory begins with three women with a vision. Over lunch, Abby Rockefeller, Lillie P. Bliss, and Mary Quinn Sullivan had the radical idea to found a museum devoted to exhibiting and collecting art of the day. Less than a year later, The Museum of Modern Art opened in rented quarters on the twelfth floor of an office building at 730 Fifth Avenue with an exhibition approved by the three women, devoted to the modern masters.
