Contemporary Art Tour in New York City

Our Art Trip to New York City from Ottawa is offered every March. Four days in Midtown Manhattan visiting top art museums and the Chelsea galleries with a group of artists and art lovers and an art historian on board. As one of our recurrent participants said,”Great value for money and total immersion in the world of contemporary art”.

Tour Overview:

New York Art Trip, our bus tour from Ottawa to New York City has been offered every March since 1993.  It is open to everyone, from art students and artists of all levels to art lovers and lifelong learners. We offer two pick-up locations in Ottawa. Participants from the Kingston and Toronto areas are welcome to join us at the Thousand Islands Duty-Free Store on the Canadian side. Also, we have attendees from the US or other countries, joining us at our hotel in NYC.

Our annual trip to New York City is so popular that we have a return rate of 76%. Furthermore, we have many recurrent participants who have joined us more than ten times already. Why? We offer accommodations in Midtown Manhattan, transportation to all museums and sites on schedule, a flexible schedule, affordable prices, a fun environment and the opportunity to travel with a group of like-minded adults and an art historian as a resource person.

During our three-night tour to NYC, we visit the MoMa, the Met, the Guggenheim, the Whitney, the Brooklyn and the Frick. Besides the amazing permanent collections of these museums, every year we find an array of art exhibitions ranging from the neoclassical and modern to the contemporary and “very now”. All museums are optional. Participants can either follow our schedule or visit the sites of their choice.
