In a city where hundreds of interesting happenings occur each week, it can be hard to pick and choose your way to a fulfilling life. Art Nerd‘s philosophy is a combination of observation, participation, education and of course a party to create the ultimate well-rounded week. Jump ahead for Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer’s top picks for 6sqft readers!

Let’s immerse ourselves in some art this weekend to ease some of the stress we’ve gone through during this election, shall we? First, get the inside scoop on Times Square’s latest Midnight Moment artist Emilio Perez, then head to the beautiful Park Avenue Armory to experience the Art Deco and mid-century modern world at the Salon Art + Design. Later “Once More, with Feeling” will take you into a group show that delves into emotional expression, and over at C24, Katja Loher transforms the inside and outside of the gallery into an alternative world. After that, transport yourself to the mountains of Nepal with the new sound installation at the Rubin Museum of Art, and then bone up from art experts at the Art Conference. Finally, if you need one last goodbye to Obama, head to the Marcy Project on Saturday for their tribute show, and if you’re still feeling blue, dance it away at the Whitney’s Annual art party.
