The Culture Connection – May 2020 Edition

May 27, 2020. by

As we continue to shelter in place, many of us miss the simple pleasures of spending a morning at the museum, enjoying a concert in the park or going out for a night at the theater.  

To help you stay connected, Douglas Elliman has curated a list of cultural opportunities and experiences in the digital space from some of our most beloved institutions. With this list, you can enjoy art, music, conversation, learning and more, right from the comfort and safety of your own home.

We applaud these important efforts to keep us connected through our common interests and hope you enjoy this week’s selections.
