Out at the Armory Arts Week

By PAUL LASTER, MAR. 2015

Looking back at Armory Arts Week, we offer a glimpse of art world players making the rounds at some of New York’s many fairs and events during the first week of March. We caught a well-heeled crowd at the stylish Art Show at the Park Avenue Armory, hipsters at the renegade SPRING/BREAK Art Show in abandoned office space at the Moynihan Station and late-night revelers at the Bjork opening at the Museum of Modern Art - and that was only the start. Heading west to the piers, our pursuit continued at the internationally acclaimed Armory Show and edgy VOLTA Art Show before culminating at the party in Hell’s Kitchen.

Scroll through the images below to catch some of the faces—both familiar and new—soaking up the culture during Armory Arts Week. WM
