Local Art Galleries You Can Browse For Free

ArtsWestchester’s Arts Exchange and the Rye Arts Center highlight the county’s best places to view without spending anything.

Museum visits may cost big bucks ($25 for MoMA, anyone?), but they don’t have a monopoly on all the art in this world. Skip the admission fees and head to one of these local galleries and art centers, where you can browse without spending a dime.
