Your New York Art Experience begins with return Business Class air travel for two from Vancouver to New York, generously donated by Dr. Francis Law and Priscilla Lam, where you will stay in a luxury suite for four nights at The Plaza Hotel Private Residences – with iconic views of Central Park – donated by Visas Consulting Group and Arte House.
Start this exclusive weekend by walking up Fifth Avenue to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where you will be hosted on a private tour made possible through Winsor Art Projects.
Continue your art experience with a visit to the Chelsea Art District with New York art advisor Susan Almrud where she will host you at three top contemporary galleries and one private foundation. You will be taken behind the private doors of each gallery to discover where the operations, collector viewings, and acquisitions take place.
While in this neighborhood, you are invited for a special behind-the-scenes experience hosted by our friends at The Shed, New York’s first arts centre dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting all types of performing and visual arts.
This weekend also includes Members’ Passes to MoMA, The Whitney, and The Guggenheim, compliments of Susan Almrud.
