Art installations to visit this summer #ArtTuesday
If you are in NYC this summer be sure to checkout some (or all) of these public art projects. From FastCompany:
The pandemic winter has been rough. The weather was bleak and so was the cultural outlook.
But with summer just around the corner, free public artwork is cropping up everywhere. Here are some of the biggest and most immersive installations you can catch in one of the country’s most culturally vibrant (and gradually reopening) places: New York City.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
