FIT is located in one of the best places for artists in the country. Even within New York City, Chelsea is a hot bed for artists of all kinds, especially the fine arts. Galleries in Chelsea traditionally hold openings on Thursday nights that are open to everyone. It is a huge opportunity and resource to have these galleries literally at our finger tips. This weekend I visited many of the galleries to see the last shows before I headed back home for break. All the pictures I show below come from just one block (25th street between 9th and 10th). It was amazing all the pieces we saw in just one block of the neighborhood and was extremely inspiring despite the fact I am not a fine arts major. Do not let resources like this go to waste while studying in the most culturally rich city in the world.
