New York’s best public art installations this season #ArtTuesday
Get outside to check out some of the best art in New York City this fall, Via CurbedNY
It might not feel like it yet, but fall has officially begun—which means that there are several new temporary public art installations enlivening the urban landscape with abstract pieces, selfie-worthy moments, and more.
Here, we’ve collected more than a dozen worth scouting in the next few months; as more cool projects come to light, we’ll update the map—and as always, if you know of anything that we may have missed, let us know in the comments.
On view in Madison Square Park until December 15, “City in the Grass” by Leonardo Drew is a more than 100-foot-long installation featuring a view of an abstract cityscape on top of a patterned surface that resembles Persian carpet design. The installation invites visitor to walk on its surface and brings together “domestic and urban motifs” that reflect the artist’s interest in global design and East Asian decorative traditions, the description says.
