Spend your afternoon visiting some of the best art galleries in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood on this small-group guided walking tour! Follow your expert guide – an artist, curator or art critic – through the Chelsea district of Manhattan as you learn the significance behind every corner.
Rewind to the early 1990s decades to when the art scene was just starting to blossom in the area: Artists were growing fond of Chelsea’s surplus of inexpensive commercial space, drawing them from swanky SoHo to set up galleries at a fraction of the price. Stretching from 13th to 29th streets between 7th and 11th avenues, Chelsea now boasts more than 370 diverse art galleries featuring talented, world-renowned artists. Visit galleries like Metro Pictures and Paula Cooper and spend the afternoon admiring and critiquing beautiful, inspiring and thought-provoking artwork.
After your art gallery tour, enjoy one of the many cafés or restaurants in the area – where some of the artists themselves once sat! The galleries available for viewing change daily, depending on featured shows and opening hours.
Note: The exact meeting location will be provided upon booking.
