The arts scene in New York this fall charts a distinct line through time. Several shows will feature historic pieces, some dating as far back as 3400-2000 BCE, while others showcase art through modern, immersive experiences.

From public art displays to gallery shows to museum presentations, here are 15 art experiences we're excited about this fall. They're presented in chronological order, so you can mark your calendar.

The energy in INTER_, Manhattan’s newest art experience, feels more like a meditation retreat than a typical gallery—and that’s by design. 

The experiential, multi-sensory museum which opened in Soho on November 2, invites visitors into a heightened state of contemplative awareness through a sound bath, light installations and aspects of meditation all combined with interactive digital art. 

Here's a sneak peek inside the museum.

Immersive art experiences in New York are getting the royal treatment with the new Hall des Lumières, the city's latest permanent center for custom-designed immersive events at the historic Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank by City Hall.

The new space launched its inaugural immersive exhibit about iconic Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. 

Tickets to "Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion" are already on sale right here. Given the magnitude of the new cultural center, you'd be remiss not to snag passes to the show right away but, just in case you need some other reasons to check out the space, we've got a few to share
