It’s your day off but we picked a winner: Jim W. Sorry everyone else. Hope to see ya and party!


Do you like to party? (I know you do). Win tix to a bash from our friends at Recess, a studio and exhibition space that fosters some pretty awesome projects, is hosting their annual benefit gala next Tuesday, May 28th, and you should go! It should be a total rip-roaring time, at the lovely Le Poisson Rouge. To help celebrate the fun (and toast Recess’ four years in operation), Art Nerd New York is giving away a pair of tickets to party to one lucky winner!

Its super easy to enter: just follow @Artnerdnewyork, @LoriZimmer and @RecessArt on Twitter, then tweet to all three of us and tell us:

What makes New York the greatest art city on earth?

Do you love the public art? The openings? Walter de Maria’s Earth Room? The giant Picasso head in Soho? There are no wrong answers, but we want to know what art nerds think makes New York the best.

One winner will be chosen on Friday,  May 24th and notified via Direct Message on Twitter.
