Times Square is abuzz this month with a new film by Alex Da Corte for #Midnightmoment and the unveiling of the annual Valentine’s sculpture—this year’s piece an interactive work that honors the diversity that immigrants have brought to New York. Also this week, head to the National Arts Club for all the gossip Marie Antoinette shared with hairdresser; check out minimalist illustrators at Spoke Art; then stop by Lincoln Center for this year’s New York City Ballet artist collaboration. Untapped Cities is also offering an underground adventure that will take curious straphangers into the depths of the NYC Subway. Finally, treat yourself to the decadence that is The Art of Food at Sotheby’s, an evening of delicious treats inspired by master artworks made by leading chefs!

This week’s less-frigid temperatures mean a great opportunity to head to Doris C. Freedman Plaza at the bottom of Central Park to experience the Public Art Fund’s latest installation before it closes next week. Across the park, the final performance of the New York City Ballet’s collaboration with artist Marcel Dzama is guaranteed not to disappoint (those costumes!). Ground Floor Gallery in Brooklyn is opening a group show inspired by the rare stone lapis, and Charlie Chaplin lights up the theater at the Rubin Museum. Semi-autobiographical film “Candy Apple” will accompany a chance to chat with director Dean Dempsey, and iconic art critic Hal Foster speaks at the Pratt Institue. Finally, as the ultimate example of the Williamsburg rent hike, seminal Williamsburg gallery PIEROGI opens its doors in… Manhattan.
