There’s lots of stuff going on in the city this week….listen up!
The Armory Arts Week: The Armory Show at Piers 92 and 94 (which features important artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries) is the main attraction, but there are art-related events all week long all over the city, from the Bronx to the Lower East Side to Brooklyn. (3/5 through 3/10)
The Orchid Show begins at the New York Botanical Gardens. The event provides demonstrations on how to care for orchids, Q&As with experts (or as I like to call them, orchid whisperers) plus lectures, guided tours and musical entertainment. If you can’t make it this week, the show runs though April, 22nd.
Fusion Film Festival: Students run this festival at our neighbor, NYU’s, Tisch School of the Arts. Fusion is a multi-day festival with the mission of encouraging, promoting and inspiring women filmmakers and the collaboration between the sexes. (Go, sisters!) You can find screeenings, industry panels, master-classes, retrospectives and student showcases. Runs 3/7 through 3/9.
ADAA Arts Show: This show is one of the best, showcasing some of the greatest art dealers and galleries. Meet the dealers, discuss and perhaps purchase the works on view. Or just browse, like I do. Through 3/10.
Strip Strip Hooray with Dita Von Teese: The burlesque queen headlines at The Gramercy Theater from Wednesday through Sunday. I mean, it’s called “Strip Strip Hooray”, people. Seriously, don’t you want to go?
The Winter Stinky Cheese Festival: (3/5 through 3/12) Chefs at nine French eateries will prepare special dishes highlighting the stinkiest of the stinkiest fromage. Sigh…I can’t wait.
