Chelsea Happening Now!

Back in the office: I found this picture from the High Line with Tickaroo's Matthew last April. It just goes to show that even with a few more snow days ahead this winter, spring is right around the corner!

It's been a great day in Chelsea. Heading back up to the High Line which will take us back to Penn Station. We've seen some great art, enjoyed the sunny weather and are heading home with a head full of ideas and a belly warmed with coffee and sweets. Looking forward to our next trek around New York soon. Hope you will join us.

The Whitney offers multiple tours daily. After lunch, we made it just in time for the 3pm tour of the Laura Owens exhibition. The curators are very knowledgeable and interesting. Our guide pointed out many aspects you might miss on your own, including the artist's self-embroidered gallery benches. The artist even insisted that the seat cushions have cutouts in which to place the individually made exhibition catalogs.

The Whitney is the preeminent museum of contemporary American art. There's also a rooftop terrace and cafe, which serves great food, coffee and ice cream.

About this time you might be getting hungry for lunch. Luckily, the Chelsea Market is not far, but we've decided to head back to the Whitney Art Museum for lunch.

James Cohan gallery featured Brooklyn based artist Bryon Kim. The exhibition featured a series of abstract sky paintings that he painted every Sunday since 2001. Each painting includes a journal like caption, which marks the artist's time and thinking while he was creating the works often a reference to family activities - his own personal art blog as it were. Note to self: I've got to write about this on www.projectartlounge.com.

There's plenty of places to hop-on or hop-off the High Line. We're taking a detour to check out some of the Chelsea galleries, including the James Cohan Gallery on 26th Street.

Discovered this fella lurking on 26th Street with the hashtag #trumprat written on the tail. We weren't the only one taking notice. I guess he's been wandering about town lately.

The High Line offers great views of the city. There's plenty of seating areas for people and traffic watching. You can enjoy the landscaped urban garden even in the Winter with beautiful fall grasses. Picnics are better saved for the summertime!

The High Line is an elevated park which runs along the former railway line connecting the old Meatpacking District and the Hudson Yard redevelopment project located adjacent to Penn Station. The park runs through the middle of the Chelsea gallery district.

Chelsea is known as New York’s thriving art district, but it has a whole lot more to offer. Check TimeOut NY for a slew of options for lunch and shopping.

Starting point is at the South end of the High Line next door to the Whitney Museum of American Art. We’ll be back later for a peek inside.

It’s high noon! Just in time to join the High Line winter tour. “From Freight to Flowers” as the friends of the High Line call it.

Where to start on a Saturday afternoon in New York? With the sun shining and the temperatures bearable, we’re off to Chelsea to take in the local art scene.
