What to do when One isn’t at the Armory Show

The Armory Show begins March 3rd and takes over NYC’s art scene until the 6th. The Armory Show—or art’s Groundhog Day—predicts spring’s gallery season. Yet most-importantly, galleries exhibit some serious shows to catch attention from the surplus of international traffic. If you aren’t in the mood to head to Piers 92 & 94 this week, you may want to attend a few events at local galleries.

Some of the events listed below are RSVP only, but you may want to try your luck getting past the door. Isn’t art about breaking boundaries?
