Exhibits and Performances in New York

A glimpse of what to experience this season and throughout the new year, from the reopening of Los Angeles’ Children’s Museum to New York’s annual Winter Show, which delights in the world of antiques


January 18-27, 2019
Park Avenue Armory

America’s largest art, antiques, and design fair is back in January, featuring more than 70 individuals in the fine and decorative arts fields who will showcase a vast array of pieces. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory, the Winter Show enables attendees to peruse a multitude of exhibits that transport them back in time to ancient Egypt, early America, or classical Italy. The show offers the highest standards of quality in the art market, with entries vetted and approved by a committee of 150 experts. The event takes place over the course of nine days, with an opening night party, as well as a Young Collector’s Night and a Connoisseurs Night, with tickets available for purchase aside from the main event tickets. The annual show benefits the East Side House Settlement, which serves the Bronx and Northern Manhattan through educational and technological programs aimed to serve as gateways out of poverty.
