Fugue in B♭by Jessica Segall
The month of August sizzles with installations from Fort Tilden to Long Island City to Harlem. This month, viewers will celebrate the Centennial of the National Park Service at Fort Tilden, with works by the Rockaway Artists Alliance, enjoy light shows and installations indoors and out. Celebrate the 30th anniversary year for Socrates Sculpture Park with the works of eight artists, and check out a roof installation in a new gallery in El Barrio.
New York will once again receive public artwork to add to our list of private art in public spaces on 57th Street, and prepare for a new permanent installation by the Hells Kitchen/Hudson Yards Alliance. We will check in on a few exciting new murals around town, and finally retrace our steps in Riverside Park to view Aaron Bell’s original M2M sculpture, following the controversy.
Here are our top 11 installations not to miss in August.
