One of our most popular and fun activities is our Chelsea Gallery Hop. On our second night in town, armed with a list of gallery openings, a big bunch of us meet at a pre-determined street corner in the Chelsea Art District – and away we go into the art-fueled night! This is a great opportunity to let loose with your fellow Roadtrippers and mix it up with local gallery goers!number of view: 880

NYC Roadtrip is social art on the move. Ever evolving at the confluence of relational aesthetics, psychogeography and DIY culture, it’s an opportunity for fun-lovin’ adventure-seekers to network, get inspired, conduct creative field research and experience everyday urban life in unusual ways; explore the non-touristy, local nuances of New York City; and plug into a vibrant travel community unlike any other.
After each NYC Roadtrip, passengers and crew are invited to participate in NYC Retro Show: a multimedia exhibition of individual and group perspectives on various New York City-inspired subjects, such as the mapping of moments; organized chaos; the artist as wanderer; “street art, street life”; the urban playground; and collective myth-making.
No matter what your background or passion – photography, architecture, painting, scrapbooking, film, performance; student, professional, hobbyist, novice – this is a chance to make the most of your New York City experience. Don’t just go on vacation. Go on a creative mission.number of view: 530

The Brooklyn Museum, housed in a 650,000 square-foot Beaux-Arts building and only a 30-minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the U.S., showcasing everything from Egyptian masterpieces to amazing contemporary work. Part of a complex of 19th-century parks and gardens – including Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Prospect Park Zoo – it’s a must-see for Museum-goers.
Of note: Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, an important feminist artwork of the 1970s and a milestone in twentieth-century art, is at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The Dinner Party comprises a massive triangular banquet table with each of its thirty-nine place-settings commemorating an important woman of history. This is prime fodder for all you contemporary art history students, for sure.number of view: 998
