New York City Art Series: Marcel Dzama

One of my favorite NYC traditions over the last 4 years is to attend the New York City Ballet Art Series. This year I am excited to attend the 2016 Art Series collaboration with  Marcel Dzama.

Dzama will exhibit Art Series’ first ever digital installation this winter on the theater’s Promenade, complete with a chess match dance off and an incognito appearance by Amy Sedaris.

The Art Series installation will be on view at three special New York City Ballet Art Series performances on February 6 Eve, 11, and 19 where all tickets are priced at $30, and each audience member will receive a limited edition commemorative takeaway from the artist.

Pictures will be available on my Facebook from the experience on February 6th!
