11 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before June 24

Just before Los Angeles-born sculptor Ken Price died last February, he approved two traveling exhibitions of his work, both of which are arriving in New York on Tuesday. Though he is best known for his three-dimensional pieces (which will be the bulk of the retrospective opening at the Met), Price drew prolifically. The Drawing Center is showing 50-odd-years' worth of works on paper that will no doubt provide nuance to our understanding of the sculptures on view uptown. —Zoë Lescaze The Drawing Center, 35 Wooster Street, New York, 6-9 p.m.
Animals are proving muses for group shows all over town. Or two of them are anyway. Cat allergies? Try the horse show. —Z.L. Tabla Rasa Gallery, 224 48th Street, Brooklyn, 6-8 p.m.
Look at those artists! Are you really not going to go to this? This is an extension of Peter Scott's exhibition at Martos, held at their back room project space Shoot the Lobster. —Dan Duray Martos Gallery, 540 West 29th Street, 6-8 p.m.
Great, great artists. Plus it looks there's a cool show upstairs by Claire Fontaine, check it out! —D.D.
Metro Pictures, 519 West 24 Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.
