The New Museum is a leading destination for new art and new ideas. It is Manhattan’s only dedicated contemporary art museum and is respected internationally for the adventurousness and global scope of its curatorial program. With a shared commitment to encouraging emerging and contemporary artists, The James New York showcases the New Museum Paper, a biannual publication, and offers complimentary tickets to view current exhibitions through the concierge.

The hotel was a sponsor of the museum's 2015 IDEAS CITY festival, hosting innovators and experts, and providing hotel guests access to panels and inspirational materials aligned with the festival's dedication to exploring the role cluture plays as a driving force behind the vitality of urban centers. One of our favorite events was a drone painting performace by Deep Labs founder and artist Addie Wagenknecht. You can see video and more information on the peformance on the New Museum site. Or for videos from the speakers and panels throughout the week, visit the New Museum YouTube page.
