Weekly What To Do: So Much Art Up In Here

February 15-19, 2023
West Hall 
One of our favorites of the entire year. Just an awe-inspiring amount of work to look at. How many galleries do you think will have NTF's for sale? Hpow many pieces will have Supreme stickers in them to be ironic? It's fun to be cynical, however there is truly just an amazing amount of art there, the good with the bad. And that's just our taste. 
Looking forward to the The Japanese Pavilion.
