So much art, so little time! Eight international art fairs — including the world famous Armory Art Show — and countless other small shows, auctions and gallery exhibits explode onto the scene with the latest and greatest from the art world.

The plethora of parties and paintings could just make you want to scream. Fear not, patrons! Our friends at Artlog put together this handy-dandy guide that will have your friends thinking you’ve got an MFA hidden up your sleeve. Check out the happenings section for super discounts and in-the-know offers for VIP sneak previews and afterparties. The Bridge Art Fair Opening Party and the Diva Block Party (both tomorrow night) sound especially tantalizing.
