We’ll encounter reassembled portions of European medieval churches, the treasured Unicorn Tapestries, and stunning stained glass windows. Located in peaceful Fort Tyron Park on a magnificent bluff overlooking the Hudson River, the Cloisters offers a respite from the bustling city, and a charming visit to Europe’s past—a perfect choice for a summer outing in New York City.

The Morgan Library and Museum– What began as the private library of the financier Pierpont Morgan has blossomed into a unique and impressive collection of manuscripts, prints, paintings, and more. A new addition by the architect Renzo Piano connects it all together with an inspiring central courtyard. If you want to entertain clients with something delicate and rare, the Morgan is the right choice for you.

Cooper- HewittAs the design branch of the national Smithsonian Institution, the Cooper-Hewitt is filled with treasures of historical and modern design. Fantastic light fixtures, eco-friendly appliances, and sleek, colorful furniture are just a few of the items you might encounter in this beautifully-curated museum. An ART SMART visit to the Cooper-Hewitt is a unique company outing experience, and will illuminate how these various objects—many of which fill our homes today—shape the way we live.

The New MuseumIn celebration of its 30th anniversary, the New Museum opened its luminous home on the Bowery on the Lower East Side in 2007. A stack of bright, rectilinear boxes, the space is New York’s premier museum devoted to emerging contemporary artists. If you’re interested in showing your clients and your team the next “up-and-coming” stars, ART SMART will introduce you to them here; this museum is well-known for discovering talent ahead of the curve.

LGBTQ Museums & Exhibitions– New York City art tours would be incomplete without including LGBTQ topics and artists showcased around the city in museums such as the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and the National LGBT Museum. For a New York team-building activity that also expands horizons, ART SMART can guide you through these museums as well as other LGBTQ exhibitions featured at The Met, New Museum, Brooklyn Museum, and Whitney Museum of American Art.
