    Overall, it's a fun, interactive museum for all ages. My teen is of the IG age so she was all about some pictures. I think it's a bit overpriced which I rarely say, but if you're in the area, it's worth a stop. If you aren't in the area, I'm not sure I'd detour for it, but it's a neat experience.

    We were staying at the hostel on the UWS so took the 1 train to 79th & Broadway to see this Banksy on the DSW building before walking on to the American Museum of Natural History right in this same area. I have been a follower of Banksy's work for some time and a couple days later we went to the Banksy Exhibition: Genius or Vandal in the city that we bought tickets for thru Fever. That was an amazing exhibition altho it is unauthorized by the artist himself. Really explained a lot about the symbolism of his art.. My family living in the UK also really know Banksy's work as well. It inspired me to buy the book on Amazon written by the artist called Wall and Piece. He certainly has a sense of purpose and a sense of humor, and he's a sneaky little devil. :)

    Sotheby's has several auctions a week out of their NYC space and the public can look the art and jewelry over to see if they want to become bidders, all for free. I looked at three lots, all of which were interesting. The first was modern art, including some names you know, such as Andy Warhol. The second lot was of mostly large aboriginal painting from Australasia. They largely dated from the 1960s to the 1980s and were excellent to see up close. However, the best to view was the jewelry. They have everything polished up and shown under perfect lighting, with every facet just poppin'. There was a lot of it and it was impressively large. The only downside is that you probably can't afford it and it will never look quite as brilliant again. There was a ton of security in the jewelry area, so probably not for you if you don't like armed guards. Of course, this week they could be auctioning American masters, Chinese porcelain or even rare cars. If you look on their website, you can probably figure out what you can see for free. I found it fun. (Oh - and there is a cafe downstairs.)

    Professionalism, caring for the artist and attention to all the important aspects from the stage of artist selection, to established contacts to be worked to culminate in exhibition, global visibility and sales. The dedication of every team we call the "Dream Team" is exceptional. In the management of the career of the represented artist we are delighted with the digital system offered. For those of us who came from a previous training in business management, we give a note 10. The professionals at the Agora Gallery demonstrate a very special humanist side besides deep knowledge and study in art. Being recognized by the Agora Gallery conveys the message that we are in the right place: The Temple of the Arts. Being represented by the Agora Gallery is something difficult to write. It would be easier to express feelings. One word just sums it all up: gratitude.

    Very respect art venue showing up and coming artists and traditional modern favorites. Chelsea is a scene and this is where it's happening. Better yet, it's free!

    The Yayoi Kusama exhibition was great. But we waited almost one hour on the line. Once we entered inside they gave us very limited time to visit the exhibition. I did a video of 30 seconds and later I heard one person saying "last 10 seconds"...
    Anyway it was a good experience.

    This unforeseen visit turned out to be one of the most enjoyable moments of our walk down south on the High Line. You can spot it from the High Line, but only just. Very interesting mix of works on display, including numerous Bansky prints.

    Audio visual show. Somewhat psychedelic, sci-fi at times. We spent about 1 hour looking at the different images/video. Be advised that it is very loud. I use my airpods to block the noise and could still here everything clearly. Also we left a bit nauseous as the images are moving and evolving constantly.

    I highly recommend this newly opened museum which originated in Stockholm, Sweden. Each floor has various themes. The black women exhibit was very impressive.
    The bookstore has several interesting photography books. The cafe was not bad.
    We suggested they serve some Scandinavian pastry.

    The Drawing Center is a very nice gallery in the Village. The current exhibits are good, and the price is quite reasonable($5 per adult)

    This is an excellent place for almost any kind of artist. Workshops galore. Have been attending weeklyworkshops and even just a weekend seminar on occasion and the teachers are superb.

    This bright, open space gives the gallery great flexibility for a variety of exhibitions. With an impressive span of work ranging from boldly figurative oil paintings to innovative constructions, The VISUAL ARTS CLASS OF 2022 THESIS EXHIBITION includes sound and video projects and extends to the 8th-floor skylit "Lantern." While ground-floor personnel are friendly, entry will nevertheless be daunting to all but the most determined since it requires moving through glass gates and taking an elevator to the 6th floor. I wonder why architect Piano didn't locate the gallery on the ground floor, as Diller + Scofidio did with the more accessible Cohen Gallery at Brown University's Granoff Center. And although there is a telephone on the attendant's desk, calls during the weekend go directly to voicemail--a frustration when the rather obscure online advance registration requirement malfunctions.

    So glad I made it to this exhibit. An "experience" is exactly right - the room was filled with beautiful vibes and people, and we had a wonderful time.
