Along with the Armory, and the pier (don’t get me started again), there are numerous other venues during Armory week where galleries, artists, museums etc. provide exhibitions and purchasing opportunities to an art starved public. Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Phillips all hold their contemporary auctions during Armory Week. The Independent Art Show is in Chelsea on West 22nd Street, there is a video art fair at the Waterfront New York Tunnel (a very cool space in a gallery/mall setting), Volta on Mercer Street, and god knows what else. And for all the art junkies who just didn’t get enough during the day by the time the shows close at 7pm, many of the galleries time new show openings to coincide with Armory week, so that you can continue your art day on into the night.
