The Who's Who of the Art World at The Armory

Are you an art lover? A fan of fine arts? Then this is the event for you! Every March artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world make New York City their destination during Armory Arts Week. The annual Armory Show runs from March 3rd through March 6th, and is located at Pier 92/94, just a train ride from our Long Island City hotel. The Armory Show is one of the art world’s biggest international art fairs devoted to the most important artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries. Seven different art fairs set up shop throughout New York with over two hundred art exhibitors from thirty-six countries taking part. The 2016 Armory focus is the African Perspective, so expect to see a spotlight on African diaspora art that collectively challenges the simple perspective that is often associated with Africa’s artistic output. Whether you purchase a work of art or just going for the artsy culture, The Armory is a once a year experience that shouldn’t be missed.
