At  West nd Street look in on Electronic Arts Intermix, which is noted for its seventies archive. At  West nd Street the sophisticated Sonnabend Gallery shows contemporary art. There are several interesting galleries at  West nd, too.

One building in particular,  West th Street, houses over twenty galleries (enough to fill an entire day all by itself ).

The most impressive of these is surely the spectacular five-wall fresco by the Mexican master muralist José Clemente Orozco, which he painted in the s.

Of particular inter­ est are Alexander Calder’s large, red, steel piece called Object in Five Planes 3 and rough-textured iron columnar works by Bev­ erly Pepper on the north and south corners (facing Broadway).
