NYC Arts

These are the New York City venues that most reliably deliver beauty — pleasure I attribute to the object (Santayana, 1896). Longer lists aren't useful, in my experience. However, to figure out what to do tonight, I suggest looking at The New Yorker, for their quite reliable selection, or Time Out for their less-reliable but all-encompassing review of what's playing now. Both magazines are available at any newstand. — Denis Pelli  P.S. I occasionally create a guide to current art events.
