NYC – Public Art

New York City is full of art. Indeed, you don’t even need to step inside a museum to encounter masterpieces.   But come summer the city becomes a canvas for all sorts of new, engaging art, with temporary installations sprouting everywhere from the Bronx to Staten Island. These works and others will only be up a few months so the  artists can take more risks, coming up with some unorthodox pieces. The majority of this blog comes from Metro.us and from Central Park Web sites.

  1. Great list, Thom! I love the High Line. One of my favorite havens in New York! Fun place to promenade and eavesdrop.
