If you are a true lover of the arts in America, this is your Graceland. Not only is the Big Apple the mecca of all things arts and culture, it is the largest city in the United States and one of the greatest cities in the world. Its greatness, however, is not just a result of its formidable size. The city’s diversity (a third of the city’s population is foreign born) is what really contributes to the innumerable colors, flavors, and mores of this incomparable metropolis. An art student who manages to actually decide on one of the many art schools and programs in the city, will find themselves faced with another great challenge upon arrival: what do you do first? New York offers over 80 museums, 500 galleries, and what seems to be a new event every day. It truly is the city that never sleeps as there is simply not enough hours in the day to enjoy all that New York has to offer. Among the museums, the most notable surely includes the largest museum in the world (and arguably the best), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met), as well as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Whitney (American classics), the Frick (old Masters), and the Guggenheim (avant-garde at its best). In fact, New York is the birthplace of abstract expressionism and postmodern American avant-garde; and for those who believe the daring experimental art of the 70s and 80s is dead, then a trip to the always controversial Brooklyn Museum of Art is definitely in order. In fact, if you live in the city, you really cannot escape the presence of the arts; The Gates, or the Nomadic Museum, Gregory Colbert’s 45,000 sq ft. floating space docked at Pier 54. In addition, the great number of thriving galleries could only survive in such a pedestrian city as New York. Though the Village and SoHo still maintain an engaging assortment of spaces, Chelsea remains the epicenter of galleries. Among the must-see venues, Matthew Marks and Freight & Volume have gotten more than a little attention, as well as Andrea Rosen, Daniel Reich, and David Zwirner. Of course, a trip to either of the two Gagosian galleries is also in order…if, that is, you can find the time. According to William Saroyan, "The role of art is to make a world which can be inhabited." Since 8.1 million people have decided to call it home, we’re guessing that the arts in New York have more than helped to make it livable. For this reason, an art student who wants access to it all has an easy choice in New York City.
