As we noted yesterday, it’s a big weekend for art on the Lower East Side. NADA’s New York Art Fair opens tomorrow at Pier 36.  Another fair, Cutlog, opens to the public today at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center.  In its second year on the Lower East Side, Cutlog features 50 galleries, as well as a film festival and performances.  Today’s hours are noon-9 p.m. with an opening reception at 6 tonight. You can see the rest of the schedule here.

The Lower East Side BID is getting in the spirit.  They have organized a Sunday Artwalk (noon-6 p.m.), with 50 participating Lower East Side galleries. You can pick up a copy of their map in the LES Visitor Center, 54 Orchard St.
