Look up WHO is showing WHERE in the Chelsea galleries this weekend, and decide WHAT you want to see.

-Read the New Yorker http://www.newyorker.com/arts/events/art or Time Out http://www.timeout.com/newyork/art, and look up Chelsea Galleries online and download their map http://chelseagallerymap.com/

-Download the app NY Art Beat (1.99) on to your smart phone. It’s a great little app that will tell you all about the shows, and let you select them on a map. This way you won’t walk by something you wanted to see!

-One recommendation, see Mark Dion at the Tanya Bonakdar Gallery on West 21st Street.

Plan! Take time this week to plan your FREE TIME with friends. You will have the afternoon to take your own art-seeing tour. Start now, form a small group of friends and dream up what would be the best thing you could see, do, or visit. Keep in mind that this should be art-related… You might visit the Guggenheim http://www.guggenheim.org/, MOMA http://www.moma.org/, see the 1983 Show at the New Museum http://www.newmuseum.org/, or the Lower East Side Galleries http://www.lesgalleriesnyc.com/. Take the time to find something that you’d really love to see!

Maps, Maps, Maps. Know where you are and where you want to go. Print out neighborhood / gallery maps, or purchase a great map of NYC and it’s subway system! Or use your phone to help you get around.

Pay attention to time. Watch your clock or watch. Please leave at least an hour to get back to the bus! Time travel is not yet possible.

Take Student ID, a bottle of water, comfy shoes, camera, notebook, and some cash! Remember that your Student ID often gets you in to museums at a much lower cost. Make sure that you signed up for the lunch box, so that you have some snacks along the way.

Emergencies, Contact, Phone Make sure that you sign the emergency contact sheet and let friends and family know that you will be in NYC for the day. AND add Michelle and Angie’s numbers in your phone. (given in email)
