We’re welcoming the warmth of June with open arms. This week’s listings are all about celebrating art in New York — indoors, outdoors, on screens in Times Square or on walls in Queens.
Kick off the month with the family-friendly Figment art festival on Governors Island, or check out photographs by a rock star’s kid, Mia Tyler. End your weekend by snagging a piece of affordable art at Cotton Candy Machine’s annual Tiny Trifecta show, or checking out live street art in Long Island City.
Every night from 11:57PM to midnight, Yorgo Alexopoulos’ Transits takes over the advertising screens with an immersive film of abstract designs and bold colors.
