For two days each October, the annual Open House New York Weekendunlocks the doors of New York's most important buildings, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build and preserve New York. From historical to contemporary, residential to industrial, hundreds of sites across the five boroughs are open to visit, with tours, talks, performances, and other special events taking place over the course of OHNY Weekend. Through the unparalleled access that it enables, OHNY Weekend deepens our understanding of the importance of architecture and urban design to foster a more vibrant civic life, and helps catalyze a citywide conversation about how to build a better New York.
To celebrate this weekend of access and public awareness, the Studio Museum is partnering with ARTNOIR—a global collective of culturalists who design experiences aimed to engage this generation's dynamic and diverse creative class—to present a weekend-long series of thematic tours and workshops inspired by our summer exhibitions. From guided tours led by Museum educators to self-guided scavenger hunts with prompts from exhibiting artists, these experiences are designed to deeply engage visitors in dynamic conversation about works on view.
Tours will depart from the lobby at 2, 3 and 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 15, and Sunday, October 16. Thanks to the generous support of Target, Museum admission and public programs are free and open to the public on Sundays and, for this special occasion, admission will be free on Saturday as well.
