The Armory Show New York City @Pier 94

These are some highlights of the 
Armory Show.

At Cheim & Read Gallery booth, Jenny Holzer had a whole booth  dedicated to her work and it was quite impressive . 

This Vic Muniz Diamond Series photo was just spectacular and so was the price tag that it sold for !
$175,000.00 USD ...yes folks money is still 
running around in NYC.
What recession?
At The Deitch Projects Gallery Booth
This painting from Ryan McGinness was a dream and you can be looking at forever finding new images each time. Somebody took it home for a cool $85,000.00 USD
Mickalene Thomas had some great pieces spread throughout the Armory.
This painting in particular adorned with Swarowski crystals was just beyond words ...Magnificent!
Rumor was that the price tag was $120,000.00. Not bad right?
CerealArt has the wrestlers sculpture in case the wallet is short for a cool $10,000.00 USD edition of 40.
