I’ll draw attention to two events currently ongoing in Manhattan, both of which focus on saving money.
The first is the Affordable Art Fair (AAF) in Midtown (34th Street) near the Empire State Building. From their web site, “AAF NYC is the place for new and established collectors to discover and buy paintings, drawings, sculptures, video, photography and limited edition prints from distinguished galleries, all priced from $100 – $10,000. This year the Fair will host more than 60 galleries from the US, Europe, Asia, Canada and South America.”
Admission is only somewhat affordable at $20, but a $5 discount is available from the web site.
The second event is an art book sale at the Met. It’s on the second floor, so don’t wonder into the main gift shop and find yourself bewildered. There are more than 150 titles, all Museum classics-from exhibition catalogues, to picture books and books about the collection-all published by the Metropolitan Museum.
Both events run through May 10th.
