Art Break: There’s an art gallery in Central Park?

By A. E. Colas, Contributing Writer, February 13, 2017

Sometimes it all seems to be too much: the pressure, the worry, the sheer stress of living in New York City. Let ZEALnyc help. Get out of the fast lane and go look at some art. We guarantee that this will provide you with something else to think about and give you that much needed distraction, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. One of our favorites this week is in the Arsenal Gallery, located in Central Park, (Yes, Central Park has an art gallery—who knew?) showing The Rhythmic Art of Thread, a beautiful and dynamic display of fabric art. What’s that? Go and see for yourself. All listings are free admission.
