You spent the summer posing next to Deborah Kass’s giant OY/YO sculpture, now spend the fall hunting down David Crumley’s DUMBO reflector as it makes its way around iconic landscapes in the neighborhood. Head to Times Square for a chance to walk on the clouds, then jaunt up to the Museum of Art and Design to take in a lecture on innovative ceramicist Peter Voulkos. The Pivot Gallery is opening a three-person show with different takes on sculpture, including a jewelry designer from Givenchy, and LMAK hosts Popel Coumou’s contemplative photographs on silent emptiness. Get on the waiting list to hear Ilana Glazer talk about intuition at the Rubin Museum of Art, and go to the gorgeous New York Public Library for a talk on the legendary Louise Nevelson, the only woman in New York to have a public plaza named after her. Finally, while you’re driving around the state in search of autumnal serenity, stop at Cornell in Ithaca to check out CODA’s incredible recycled chair pavilion that’s snaking around the quad.
