The Armory Show 2013: International Taste of Modern Art. Part I

It’s unfortunate if you are not living in New York City, because one of the things that makes this city so exciting to live in is the plenty of the art shows and art galleries.

One of the biggest art show that happens only once a year is The Armory Show.
