In a city where hundreds of interesting events occur each week, it can be hard to pick and choose your way to a fulfilling life. Ahead Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer shares her top picks for 6sqft readers!

Break out after the blizzard cabin fever, and get into an evening at MoMA for their yearly Members Party (yes, that means you need to become a member if you aren’t already!) If architecture is more your thing, celebrate the Van Alen Institute at The Tunnel, or if you’re just not into parties, get cultural at the opera in Bushwick. BBQ joint/gallery Fort Gansevoort welcomes guest curator Hank Willis Thomas for a new show, and Creative Time stages a Shirin Neshat talk at the beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Enjoy historic postcards of synagogues of the past at Museum at Eldridge Street, then appreciate the surreal illustrations of You Jung Byun. Finally, get an insider’s tour of Grand Central Terminal, including a jaunt across its catwalk to get your very own aerial pictures of the beautiful concourse.

In a city where hundreds of interesting events occur each week, it can be hard to pick and choose your way to a fulfilling life. Ahead Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer shares her top picks for 6sqft readers!

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!

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!

This week, come join me as I present comic abstraction artist Ellanah Sadkin before heading to enjoy Eric Helvie’s film noir surrealist paintings in Chelsea. Untapped Cities wants to share Eldridge Street’s secrets with you, and Emilio Perez wants to bring you inside one of his paintings across the Times Square screens. Halloween is also upon us, and Last Rites does it right with a massive macabre show and after party. And if you want to keep the party going after, you can join nightlife legend Susanne Bartsch for her annual ball at MoMA PS1—or succumb to artist collective CHERYL on Monday at Le Poisson Rouge. Finally, get glamorous at the National Arts Club for the Accessible Art Fair, which is making its New York debut after a successful run in Brussels.
