One of NYC’s largest (and swooniest!) art fairs is upon us. Art galleries, critics and lovers from around the world are streaming into the city to take part in the massive, 211-booth extravaganza that is the Armory Show. So, we’ve taken to Instagram to help navigate the event’s wonder-filled waters. Below, check out the four art-loving Instagrammers we have to thank for the exhibit inspo and learn about the artists behind the images. After that, get thee to the Armory Show this weekend! It ends this Sunday, March 6th.
