Your Art and Design Events Agenda, For the Week of June 6, 2014

June 6, 2014

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.
