Get ready for a big art weekend in the city – the Armory Show and Scope are finally in town! It all started on March 5th, however will go through the weekend until March 8th – and we couldn’t be more delighted! The Armory show is a fine arts fair which will be located at Pier 92 and 94 in NYC, and Scope is presenting at Lincoln Center at 62nd and 10th.
The Armory show is a presentation of galleries exhibiting work from the 20th and 21st century, including abstract, color field, pop and conceptual art. What could be a better source for inspiration? The Scope fair includes emerging artists, with a bit of a younger audience, due to the selection of emerging and experimental artist from the most innovative galleries around the world. But if you are trying to beat the crowds, make sure to visit the other exhibits at the Guggenheim and Cooper Hewitt we have listed below.
The Guggenheim offers “Art after Dark” the first Friday of every month, and it happens to be tonight. For $25 entrance fee, enjoy great DJ’s and cocktails while wandering through Frank Lloyd Wrights incredible design. If you are not a night owl, get going early on Saturday and visit the Cooper Hewitt to see their exhibit called “Wall Stories: Children’s wallpaper” which is anything but juvenile. This collection is from the National Design library, which presents wallpaper since the 1870’s, is inspired by both literature and popular culture, and surprisingly modern even for today. Happy viewing!
