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!

The turn of the month means a new Midnight Moment in Times Square, which delves into the abstract paintings of Emilio Perez. The former Tunnel nightclub welcomes art prints and books for the EAB Fair, and Equity Gallery brings guest curator Osman Can Yerebakan on for a show inspired by Jean Genet. Epic duo Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman transform Storefront for Art and Architecture into the Rat Fink Room, and Francisco de Pajaro transforms every inch of Castle Fitzjohns into an extension of his street art. The 22nd Annual ArtWalk NY art party honors Kenny Scharf this year, and Hauser & Wirth honor the late Mike Kelley with a show of his exquisite 2D works. Finally, grab a group for a day of excitement and learning for the Peg-Leg Pete Scavenger Hunt!
