What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon when in NYC. The space is breathtaking. There are three floors of art in this Museum in the Chelsea area in New York City. The museum is home of the Jean Miotte foundation. The Museum has a permanent collection featuring Miotte's paintings, which I find inspirational as well as playful. His work is showcased on the first floor taking up large proportions of wall space, making the viewer feel as though they are in his studio.
The three floors of art work, typically change every month. Admission are very inexpensive compared to any other New York Museums. I also noticed that Thursdays at the museum are free!
As I wondered through each floor, there were very friendly staff members available to answer any questions I had concerning the art or museum. I find myself wanting to know about the artist or piece of work when I am in a gallery or in a museum, but I am at loss as to who to ask.
A great experience will come at least once a month to see the latest from the Chelsea Art Museum.. can't wait 'til the next exhibition!!
Pros: space, international artists, friendly staff, bookstore
