As the sun came out in New York City and the last mounds of the snow dumped by the big storm a few days earlier melted away, it seemed a fitting day for the opening of the Armory Show, considered by many contemporary art enthusiasts to be the kickoff to the spring art season.
The Armory Show, now in its eleventh year, was held in the cavernous Pier 94 at the edge of the Hudson River from March 5th to 8th, 2009. Plus for the first time the fair included a new section in Pier 92 focusing on modern art and contemporary masters.
