Curators for iconic museums on the Upper East Side and fledgling galleries in Brooklyn do more than hang paintings: These specialists define the viewing experience of art; through curators, narratives are formed, experiences take shape.

If you’re in the New York area, download the free ‘THIRTEEN Arts’ app for smartphones, which features an interactive map of nearby cultural events and exhibitions, as well as an events calendar and video previews.
