It's supposed to be almost 80 degrees in New York today which would make it a great day to visit the Frieze Art Fair on Randall's Island. Over 180 of the world's leading galleries will be exhibiting their works inside and out and some of New York's best restaurants are on hand when you need a pick me up. Getting there is half the fun too. You can take the ferry or the Joe Fresh Shuttle Bus.

When the rain returns on Saturday, I recommend heading inside to take advantage of all the new gallery openings. Elizabeth Peyton will be showing her new works at Gavin Brown through May 13th.
One of my favorite art books that was also on Jenna Lyons desk is Cecily Brown. I've never seen her work in person so I'm excited to head over to Gagaosian Gallery on Madison Avenue to see her new show. It will be on view through June 22nd.
While at Gagosian on Madison Avenue, why not stop in and see the Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album show also up through June 22nd. It includes the actor's photographs from the 1960's that haven't been exhibited since the 1970's.
While you're uptown, why not pop over to Sotheby's to see the amazing Man Made: Jean-Michel Basquiat. I've already seen this one and can attest that it's worth seeing before it ends on June 9th.
If you prefer to stay downtown, then make sure you check out the Anselm Kiefer show at Gagosian at the West 21st Street gallery.
