If the traditional parade is too much for you, check out the lower-key, lower-Manhattan walking tour, themed especially for St. Patrick’s Day. Walkers will explore NYC's former “Little Ireland” district, learn about the incredible contribution Irish immigrants made to the overall history of the city, and understand why this day is more popular in New York than it is in Ireland.
As its name implies, this fair is devoted to works (drawings, prints, photos, mixed-media) on paper, but not just on paper: The offerings include inventive three-dimensional sculptures and installations made out of paper. As the latter suggests, Art on Paper is dedicated to pushing the envelope on one of art’s oldest mediums.
NADA ain’t nothing as far as this fair mounted by The New Art Dealers Alliance is concerned. Begun in Miami in 2002 before launching in New York in 2012, NADA marks its return to Armory Week after several years of coinciding with Frieze New York in May. With 100 galleries on tap, there’s plenty to take in, but while you’re at it, check out the limited-edition t-shirts on sale by a roster of New York’s most notable drag artists, including Lady Bunny and Taboo! Another plus: half of all ticket proceeds are being donated to the ACLU.
