Art/Trek NYC branches out to the five boroughs in a quest to showcase new and emerging artists. Traveling in the show's signature mobile art gallery, a converted recreational vehicle nicknamed the ArtV, host CJ Follini joins a different borough-specific guest host in each episode to meet a rising artist who's on the verge of breaking into New York City's competitive art scene. Each artist puts together an impromptu art show in the ArtV and invites residents from their neighborhood to view the work and share their opinions on camera about the art.
