What You Can Expect

New York Neighborhood Contemporary Art Tour

Sculpture, LIC Gallery, New York City

Choose from among three neighborhoods, but one thing remains a constant on these three tours — you’ll see an abundance of great artwork.

DUMBO Gallery Tour
In Brooklyn, head to the DUMBO neighborhood. This area has become one of New York City’s premier arts districts, with venues like the Klompching Gallery, a hot destination for contemporary fine art photography in Brooklyn; St Ann’s Warehouse, a performing arts institution; and the A.I.R. Gallery, the first all-female cooperative gallery in the United States.

Williamsburg Gallery Tour
Also in Brooklyn is Williamsburg, with a large local arts community and hipster culture. Figureworks is a gallery here dedicated to contemporary and 20th-century fine art that explores the human form. Causey Contemporary Gallery exhibits the technically and conceptually challenging work of 13 core artists. And Pierogi Gallery showcases the contemporary works of both emerging and established artists.

LIC Gallery Tour
In Queens, Long Island City is noted for its thriving arts community. There’s the Fisher Landau Center for Art, a private foundation that offers regular exhibits of contemporary art. And MoMA PS1 is an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art. It’s the oldest (and one of the biggest) nonprofit arts centers in the U.S. that’s devoted entirely to contemporary art. Visit with artists and learn about becoming an art collector on any budget. Discover repurposed manufacturing sites where artists now work, including M55 Art and Space Womb, which exhibits abstract art from new and well-known Asian artists.

Our tour Guide was wonderful and very informative.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

This was a fabulous way to begin a NYC holiday! The DUMBO neighborhood is filled with art with no pretense, and many, many friendly residents and shop owners. With its cobble-stoned streets and avenues, one could be in Amsterdam or parts of Boston/ San Francisco. The guide for this tour was an artist herself from Harlem; her comments on the galleries' works were up-to-date and informative. As well, her knowledge of the development of this neighborhood as one of Brooklyn's finest gems was genuine and interesting. I highly recommend this tour as you will come away feeling more a part of a sometimes overwhelmingly large city!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

It was very good. We were a group of 3, with 2 other people. Savanah, the guide was excellent, very informative, and showed us not only interesting small galleries and artists, but a great insight into Brooklyn life, interesting destinations and very useful information about directions, the Subway and New York in general


3 star rating: Worth doing July 2012

The guide was very informative and knew her art. It was good to see round Brooklyn with someone who knows the area well. We looked round some galleries that you wouldn't know where there without the guide.
