NY1's weekly segment "Your Weekend Starts Now" shows entertaining picks for great things to do this weekend all around the city. NY1's Arts reporter Stephanie Simon filed the following report.
The Armory Show
First up is The Armory Show itself at Piers 92 and 94 on Manhattan's West Side.
"It's divided into contemporary and modern art and you will need to spend a whole day there," says arts consultant Maureen Sullivan. "So satellites have spun off of that to be able to show emerging artists and to work in different spaces that get more the flavor of the way artists are working."
Tickets start at $30.
In one associated event, a trolley in the Bronx will also take visitors to Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum for more art. For a full schedule of Armory Arts Week events, visit www.armoryartsweek.com.
