Whether you can afford to shell out the big bucks for a Lichtenstein or just want to spend an afternoon taking in some stellar pieces of art, the 20th annual Art Show, presented by the Art Dealers Association of America, is always a highly anticipated event. Today is the final day of the show, which features 150 artists and 15 solo exhibitions, including recently released photographs from the estate of Richard Avedon, collages by Andy Warhol, and a retrospective of works by Steve Wolfe, known for his painted sculptures of books and record albums. A new addition this year is the installation of three site-specific works on the armory’s first floor (which will be open free of charge) by emerging artists, including Lisi Raskin’s Command and Control, a TV station that monitors your every move on a big screen. Proceeds benefit the Henry Street Settlement, one of the oldest social-service agencies in the city.
