Contemporary Art Gallery Walking Tours
The Cooper Union continuing education department is offering this interesting continuing education course begining in March:
You have to know where to look for great art. Every month, New York’s hundreds of galleries mount new exhibitions—but how do you know which are worth visiting? Join art critic and art tour guide Merrily Kerr for a class that will take you straight to the most talked about contemporary art of the moment. As a writer for magazines including Time Out New York and Flash Art, she conducts the class from the point of view of an active art critic, devising itineraries to include artwork and exhibitions that are currently attracting critical attention. The class will visit galleries in Chelsea, Soho, on the Lower East Side and in the 57th Street area. Lively discussions will result from seeing a range of artwork in different media, from artists of different ages and nationalities whose careers are at different stages. Whether you are an art addict or just art curious, join Merrily Kerr on an enjoyable trip of cultural discovery. Wear comfortable shoes.
Class will meet at noon on March 13 Saturday 11:00 am – 1:00 pm;
4 sessions starting March 5, 2011, ending March 26, 2011
