      About This New York Tour

      New York City is the epicenter of contemporary art, and Chelsea is at the heart of it all. Whether you are a neophyte art enthusiast or serious collector, the artistic talent and creative energy here will set your spirit soaring. Step into this astonishing district with an art-loving and gallery-savvy guide at your side. You'll maximize your time, and your appreciation for the fabulous art you see.

      Chelsea is the place for art lovers. It's a vast maze of galleries with dozens of new shows opening every month, so rely on your guide's knowledge of the galleries and their strengths to chart your course. Look forward inspiring experiences in such dramatic spaces as the Mary Boone Gallery (representing prominent contemporary artists) and the Matthew Marks Gallery (European and American artists of different generations).

      You’ll also check out promising younger gallerists like Zach Feuer and Oliver Kamm. In addition, you’ll look at what's happening on the fringe of Chelsea in galleries known for experimental and thought-provoking art. Viewing the work of young or underexposed artists can give you exciting previews of what's next on the contemporary art scene. With six or less in your group, this is an intimate and personalized art walk.

      As you stroll from gallery to gallery, you’ll hear the fascinating details about Chelsea's transformation from a gritty industrial district and its swift trajectory to art-world prominence. You also discover that, like every art district, it continues to evolve and change. Art is a transcendent force. And you'll feel its power in Chelsea.

      Elevating your art experience

      Above Chelsea's streets, the High Line is a public park created from an old raised freight line. After the trains stopped running in early 1980s, a wild tangle of grasses, shrubs, and trees grew up around the old railroad tracks. These hardy species inspired the landscape for this aerial greenway, now a lush backdrop for art. Treat your eye to beautiful wildflowers, stunning city views, and an ever-changing array of art on and around the park.
