InContext Tours are led by Elizabeth Tenenbaum and Elissa Levy. Elizabeth is a painter, illustrator and contemporary art collection manager who lives in Brooklyn.

We will be coordinating one public tour a month, in the Fall and Spring seasons. We also arrange private tours and welcome all inquiries!  Please join us as we take you to emerging, under-represented, and more established artists to see what you would not normally be able to see. We will end each tour with refreshments in a local spot that you may have always wanted to go to or haven’t even heard of yet.

Stay tuned! And feel free to contact us with any questions.

    Ladies – these look very exciting.

    I’d like to know in what context – no pun intended 🙂 – photography by us tourists might be permitted on the tours.

    (No flash of course – I’m a musician & former dancer myself, and also photograph sports; I know how distracting that can be.)

    Thank you!

      Photography is permitted — but only on the approval of each Artist on the tour.
      Thank you.

    I was wondering if there is a date scheduled for the next art tour of Bushwick?

      Thanks for your question! We were just discussing a Spring tour for Bushwick, when the weather gets warmer. Although if we feel there is enough interest, we might move it up and try to limit the amount of walking. Check in again or feel free to email us at

    On Wed. April 6, our whole school (grades 9-12) is going out to explore NY City. I am the art teacher and would like to take a small group (10-20) to Williamsburg to see some working artists in action. If we charge everyone $15-$20 can we make something happen? I need to know fairly quickly. I have other ideas I am also pursuing. phil

      Thanks so much for your question! We’re very interested but it may be difficult to confirm artists in their studios on a Wednesday afternoon (most have day jobs, teach, etc). Email us at and we would be happy to discuss further with you.
      Best, Elissa and Liz
