Stay out of the cold this February with these four museum exhibits throughout the city.

Exhibitionism- The Rolling Stones
Industria, 775 Washington St. West Village
This exhibition tells the story of The Rolling Stones and chronicles their formation up to their rise to become a cornerstone of rock n roll, containing over 500 original Rolling Stones items. Tickets are $30 for the exhibit which features fashion from designers such as Gucci and Prada spanning back to the 1960s. Filled with videos and immersive displays throughout, exhibitionism culminates in a 3D concert that is not to be missed.

Raymond Pettibon: A Pen of All Work
The New Museum, 235 Bowery
Featuring more than 800 drawings spanning from the 1960s to the present, this exhibit covers three floors of the New Museum. The exhibit combines image and text, along with videos and previously-published zines and books to chronicle the history and culture of America. Students can purchase discounted tickets for $12 for the exhibit which runs until April 9.

Night Fever: New York Disco 1977–1979, The Bill Bernstein Photographs
The Museum of Sex, 233 Fifth Avenue (@ 27th Street)
Night Fever features 40 photographs spanning 1977-1979 from Bill Bernstein and also includes video interviews from the disco era. The works express the “radical multiculturalism” of the New York’s disco clubs of the late 1970s by exploring these clubs as arenas for interaction between different races, ages and sexual orientation. Be quick — the exhibit ends on Feb. 19.

A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism
Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn
Feminist art is the focus of this collection of 10 exhibits and public programs, that features the works of such artists as Georgia O’Keeffe and Marilyn Minter. A Year of Yes, which runs until early 2018, is a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Don’t hesitate to say yes to this showcase, as it examines the next steps for the feminist movement and the future of equality and intersectionality.
