From 16th Street to 27th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues, there are more than 350 art galleries that are home to modern art from upcoming artists and respected artists as well. Along with the art galleries, Chelsea is home to the Rubin Museum of Art - with a focus on Himalayan art, the Chelsea Art Museum, the Graffiti Research Lab and the Dance Theater Workshop a performance space and support organization for dance companies. The community, in fact, is home to many highly regarded performance venues, among them the Joyce Theater one of the city's premier modern dance emporiums and The Kitchen a center for cutting-edge theatrical and visual arts.
