ABOUT JOHN GAGNÉ
Hello and Welcome –
New York is overwhelming! That’s part of its charm. So if you have a few hours and you really want to explore well-known and little-known gems of the art world, I’d invite you to ask me along.
Sharing my passion for art and artists across this city’s cultural wealth is a way to champion creativity, expression and achievement. The tour is relaxed, the conversation informal though rich with detail, history and observations on the art and artists we visit.
I’m a creative director in the advertising industry, an educator and mentor of professional design groups, an avid book collector and art collector. I spent a number of years traveling the world as a filmmaker and typographer. Happily married, my partner Joanne and I live in Brooklyn with our young boys.
