Tour The Galleries Of The Lower East Side In NYC

Let's wander down to the Lower East Side in Manhattan, and explore some of the many art galleries and artists' spaces.

The ELS LES tours provide a guided walking tour of artists' spaces and galleries.

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Robotic sculptures, honeycomb hives, and outdoor installments are just some of the artistic treasures that regularly pepper the Lower East Side's eclectic galleries. This Summer into Fall, urban art lovers and collectors are invited to explore these inventive works and creative forms during the ELS-LES Art Gallery Crawls, a series of guided tours through the Lower East Side's artist community. Sponsored by the Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID), ELS-LES -Every Last Sunday on the Lower East Side- takes place on the last Sunday of every month. Each free guided tour of the Lower East Side's independent studios, artist-run galleries, and performance spaces include a LES discount guide and neighborhood map featuring historic points of interest and direct access to many of the area’s fabled artists.

ELS LES offers a free outlet for one’s artistic curiosity in hipper, edgier alternative to Chelsea. Aaron Thompson, founding artist of art.les.nyc studios noted that, "The many local artists and emerging galleries have helped build the Lower East Side over time and continue to help give the neighborhood its unique flavor."

The tour lasts a few hours, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water, or anything you'll need to feel comfortable while walking outdoors in the city.

We can decide as a group if we want to have dinner after the tour, which ends at approximately 3PM. There are many interesting and inexpensive food venues in the neighborhood.

Hope to see you there!
