New York Art Tours

Artists are creative, sure. But the sheer variety and visionary talent on display in New York’s galleries can still come as a shock. Dozens of penguins responding to your movements in an interactive display? Saw it. Multi-screen video of a band playing a tune so beautiful it moved many to tears? Loved it. Hungry for some super-skilled watercolor painting? We’ll go there! Join one of Merrily’s scheduled group tours, and find out why people keep coming back for their art fix.

On our two-hour tour, we’ll visit approximately seven to eight exhibitions, seeing and discussing the most important shows of the moment in variety of media. Tours take place rain or shine and meet in a different specified gallery location for each tour.

best art on the lower east side

On the Lower East Side, we'll visit veteran galleries and outside-the-box spaces as we see some of the city’s most cutting edge art. Smaller and more experimental than most Chelsea galleries, LES venues are often surprising and never dull.
