The world famous Sotheby’s not only auctions off works of art and other valuables, they also display them in many floors of galleries that are open to the public. The sketching views from the upper floors are fantastic.
Where: Sotheby’s New York City, 1334 York Avenue - On the east side between 71st and 72nd Streets
When: On Saturday, December 3rd, we will meet in the lobby at 11:00. (The galleries open at 10:00, if you want to get there earlier.) From 11:00 till 12:30, pick your spot and have fun sketching.
Lunch: 12:30 we’ll head up to the Sotheby’s café on the 10th floor for lunch, chat, and sketching (of course).
Afternoon: 1:30 - return to the galleries or the lobby,... or try your hand at the views off the roof outside the café, if the weather is inviting
|The Sketching Views are Fantastic|
Show and Tell: 3:00 reconvene in the lobby, for a short walk to Finnegan’s Wake Pub, 1361 1st Ave on the north west corner of 73rd St. and 1st Avenue, to share drawings, good stories and beer, or wine if you're so inclined (food too if you like).
Directions to Sotheby’s: (see map below)
The nearest subway stop is the Lexington Avenue local stop at 68th Street (the 6 train).
The express trains (the 4 and 5) stop at 59th Street and 86th Street.
The 72nd Street crosstown bus will take you right there; the 68th Street crosstown will get you to 68th and York.
If you’re coming by subway and the weather is bad, you can hop onto the 68th Street crosstown at Lex and 68th Street, instead of walking the four rather long blocks from the subway to York Avenue.
