Tour New York City’s Best Art Galleries in Chelsea
If you’re an art lover, try this small-group guided tour (with no more than six people) of some of New York City’s best art galleries in Chelsea. With an expert artist or art critic as your guide, visit a handful of the more than 370 art galleries and learn the history behind how the neighborhood became a pioneer of the art world.
You’ll learn about the early 1990s 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 boasts world-renowned artists. You’ll get to tour several well-known galleries like Metro Pictures and Paula Cooper.
