Another summer weekend is upon us and we can’t wait to get out the office and into the city. This weekend Manhattan’s Summer Streets is back, and New Yorkers are invited to stroll (or bike) up and down Park Avenue, which will not only be closed to moving traffic, but jam packed with countless activities, music and food the whole way through. And if you decide to take this car-free jaunt, be sure to check out Ewerdt Hilgemann’s sparkling sculptures along the pedestrian median.
Once you’ve got your fair share if sunshine, head on over to the AIA NY’s happy hour and mingle with architects and their fans. If art is more your thing, get to know Newark’s public art community and their ideas over drinks at the NeWWalls mixer. And finally, for graffiti art and heady assemblages pay visits to the exhibitions at Tabla Rasa Gallery and Pioneer Works in Red Hook—the latter followed with a wild after party, of course.
