If you’re looking to become more artistically immersed while keeping your wallet safe and sound, LES Gallery Nights is your answer. This bi-monthly event supports local art spaces through a free self-guided walking tour, giving guests after-hours access into the neighborhood’s coolest contemporary galleries as well as the opportunity to explore the area like never before.
Taking place on the second Sunday and the third Thursday of every month, participating galleries and studios will remain open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., providing guests with dozens of spaces to stop in and interact with the work on display. And unless you’re looking to add some new artwork into your home, this event is completely free!
Each month they update their website, providing a list of the exhibits on display, so you can check it monthly or allow yourself to be surprised!
Though the February nights have already passed, next month’s dates are set for Sunday, March 12th and Thursday, March 16th.
Some participating galleries include Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space, Essex Flowers, Shelter, and Susan Eley Fine Art,
Reservations and tickets are not required for entry. Whether you go with a date or ride solo, it’s a great way to connect with NYC’s vibrant art scene at no cost.
