My Top 5 Art Arsenal at the Armory Show

Updated: Sep 20, 2022

09/10/2022 - NYC: This was my 1st time at the Armory Show at Jacob Javits Center. This venture is part of my effort to educate myself about the art industry. In the past, I have been to the Javits Center for Comic Con and the NY Auto Show. Both are huge events. However, I honestly didn't anticipate that the Amory Show would be on the scale of those events. This art show absolutely was HUGE! I was also astonished by the various artistic styles by the numerous artists.

Near the entrance, there was a book vendor called Taschen, which was promoting and selling their new books ranging from comic books, cars, fashion and music . Erika treated me to "an early Christmas present" and bought me a dope photography book called Ice Cold: A Hip-Hop Jewelry History.

In total, we spent 3 hours marveling at all of the artwork. Below are my top 5 pieces:
