The New Yorker‘s Passport to the Arts is back. The venerable magazine and its promotions department have organized a gallery crawl, evening cocktail party, and silent auction (to benefit Creative Time) on Saturday, November 8. A $55 ticket gets you a “limited-edition passport” that each of the 25 SoHo and Lower East Side galleries and venues on the self-guided tour will stamp with a replica of a featured work of art. And with a list of participating galleries that includes Joe Sheftel, Laurel Gitlen, and Invisible-Exports, this year’s Passport to the Arts promises to be quite a trip.
