Join your pals from ArtForward and Wired NY Meetup groups. We'll do a sweep of Williamsburg galleries. We'll have the chance to hear from some gallery directors & artists.
In previous Meetups, we've gone to the following galleries:
Cotton Candy Machine
For those who are interested, we'll end at a local tavern for some brilliant conversation, and to watch the Kentucky Derby. All of the prep races have been run and now it is time to turn our attention to Derby 2016. Following American Pharoah's Triple Crown success last year, there is more attention than ever on the race.
The 142nd Kentucky Derby, the first leg of the Triple Crown, will be held at Churchill Downs on Saturday, May 7. Two weeks later, the Preakness Stakes will be run at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, May 21. The Belmont Stakes, the final jewel, will be contested in New York at Belmont Park on Saturday, June 12.
Who is the Kentucky Derby 2016 favorite?
Undefeated 2-year-old champion Nyquist is the Kentucky Derby 2016 favorite. He won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year and started his 2016 campaign with victories in the San Vicente Stakes at Santa Anita Park and the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park.
Other Kentucky Derby contenders include Santa Anita Derby winner Exaggerator, Blue Grass Stakes hero Brody's Cause, and Arkansas Derby winner Creator.
