How I wish I could be in NYC this week!!! The 16th edition of SCOPE New York 2016 starts today March 3rd thru March 6th one block from the Armory Shoes Piers at Metropolitan West Pavilion. 60 international galleries will be in attendance showing the best in contemporary art.
SCOPE New York stands apart from the rest with their critically-acclaimed open-plan exhibition design that allows exhibiting galleries to flow organically in the space rather than being smushed in small booths on top of each other.
This year their special programming includes the RUSH PHILANTHROPIC ARTS FOUNDATION presenting a new, limited edition print portfolio marking the 20th Anniversary of Rush and its programs.
Using the SCOPE Art App, visitors can access the catalog, check out exhibitor highlights , view the floor plan and create their own collections!
Event highlights include: The Platinum First View Brunch, on Thursday, March 3, 2 – 4PM: Featuring complimentary cocktails. This event is free for Platinum VIP cardholders, by invitation, or $150 ticket at the door. Also on Thursday, March 3, SCOPE welcomes registered Press and VIP cardholders to our Preview reception, with complimentary cocktails from 4 – 6PM.
SCOPE’s Official Party will be presented by BMI, featuring live performance by Zebra Katzand complimentary cocktails from Ilegal Mezcal. Hosted by Marquee, the event will take place Saturday, March 5, 9 – 11PM. Admission is based on capacity and by invitation and confirmed RSVP only.
