Making the trek into the city to visit the hushed silence of Chelsea galleries with a baby seems rather….well, intimidating. I remember pumping milk in the bathroom of one of those galleries and feeling soooo lonely and so out of place. But, there’s strength in numbers.
Two BoCoCa moms are betting that there are lots of parents that miss the art scene and other culture venues in NYC. Sammy Smith and Jackie Delamatre have launched a business, Bottle Rocket Stroller Tours, that debuted this week, offering stroller tours throughout NYC. They are starting with Chelsea galleries and will expand from there.
These moms know their stuff: Jackie currently teaches stroller tours and school tours at the Guggenheim Museum as well as school tours at the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art
Bottle Rocket will not only explore Chelsea’s galleries, but experience new ways to engage babies/toddlers with art.
What a perfect way to spend the afternoon- feeding on the dialogue of art and meeting new friends.
