The Armory Show in full swing
March 8, 2013 by James
Anyone who loves art should be aware that March is an important month in New York City.
Currently underway is the 15th annual celebration of Armory Arts Week, an arts festival showcasing works at several museums around the city and flagshipped by The Armory Show. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the The International Exhibition of Modern Art that was held at the Lexington Avenue Armory, giving the show its namesake.
This year’s show is curated by the director of the Andy Warhol Museum, and it features a prominent gallery on Warhol’s art. Liz Magic Laser was also hired as the show’s artist and has composed the show’s visual identity through advertisements, signs, and other printing services for the event. More than 200 other galleries are on hand at the event as well. Exhibitions from David Zwirner, Jack Shainman, and Marianna Boesky are on display alongside famous contemporary works from all over the world.
The show is taking place on Piers 92 and 94 on the west side of Manhattan. Guests were able to purchase a four-day pass for $60, or a day pass for $30 is available as the show draws to a close tomorrow. There are also other admission options for seniors, students, and large groups.
Organizers for The Armory Show may have turned to print companies to create flyers to alert people of the event. The materials created could be used to draw in attendance from borough areas like Long Island City . These and other things printed for the show would also probably feature Liz Magic Laser’s wonderful art design.
