The worlds of art and design will intersect during Madison Avenue Art & Design Weekend May 14-16. The Madison Avenue B.I.D., in partnership with Design Pavilion’s WINDOWS Open to the Sky, will showcase student art from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in a series of available store windows. This NYC End-of-Year Student Design Showcase has been organized by Design Pavilion and ArtsThread, in collaboration with NYCxDesign, to present the work of students in lieu of the cancelled end-of-year student exhibitions due to the pandemic. It will be an extremely noteworthy public display at a time when students, schools and public need uplifting and hope.
The Madison Avenue Spring Gallery Walk on Saturday, May 15, 2021, as part of Madison Avenue Art & Design Weekend, will offer art enthusiasts the opportunity to safely schedule appointments for gallery visits. A prestigious roster of internationally acclaimed galleries, located on Madison Avenue between 57th and 86th Streets, will open their doors for tours and discussions of their current exhibitions.
Madison Avenue Art & Design Week also celebrates the arrival of spring in so many ways. Free and open to the public, visitors and shoppers are invited to dine in outside cafes, take a walk on the avenue lined with flowers and trees, shop in the world’s finest stores, schedule a visit to the new Frick Madison and experience fine art and design every step of the way. Madison Avenue Art & Design Weekend is organized by the Madison Avenue B.I.D.
