New York is pulsating with examples of art and design around every corner and from neon billboards and Times Square to the spiralling architecture of the Guggenheim, this is where university tours get really exciting.
Understanding the city's passion for art is essential for getting under the skin of NYC and visits to the MET, the Cooper–Hewitt, the National Design Museum and the Neue Galerie New York, all help to build a picture of an ever-burgeoning scene.
Elsewhere you'll discover the Frick Collection, the Museum of Arts & Design (MAD) and Battery Park's Skyscraper Museum all providing plenty more food for thought for ravenous university student tours.
New York City has untold opportunities for art and design students to really get inspired by their surroundings and simply by looking up they'll no doubt be left scribbling and sketching at an intoxicating pace. The Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Centre and the Brooklyn Bridge all represent some exquisite examples of American architecture and from Art Deco to Neoclassical, no stone has been left unturned in developing New York's iconic skyline.
Exploring neighbourhoods away from the tourist hordes is a great idea if you want to find the real heart in the art of NYC and the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens all hold exhibitions and ethnic heritage events that underline the city's reputation as a cultural hub.
Inspiration comes in many forms and whether it's the eclectic nature of New York's bustling city streets or the community spirit that's alive and kicking in every neighbourhood, there's just something about this city that really clicks.
And, if you're hoping to take your university art and design student tours into the realms of Rothko, Pollock, Warhol and Lichtenstein, then there's only one place on the planet worth heading to – New York City.
