You don’t have to be an art aficionado to love this tour. Visit an exciting gallery area straddling Chinatown and the Lower East Side between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, full of first-time gallery owners and the fresh artists they bring in. We’ll visit an aroma art exhibit where you’ll SMELL the art, and see delightful “paintings” made of melted Crayola crayons, among several eye-popping shows! All galleries require masks, and some may require vaccination proof.

The tour is led by Rafael Risemberg who has a Ph.D. in arts education. He will lead you on an insightful, entertaining and affordable journey through a contemporary and amazing art scene.  Rafael explains the art in ways that makes the experience meaningful for everyone while encouraging everyone to share their thoughts.

Our tours take place no matter what the weather is like. Our group will be joining Rafael’s larger group tour.

Following the tour many in the group will likely grab a drink / snack at a local cafe.

Pay $30 when you arrive.
