From theatrical “Show Globes” in Times Squares, to a zig-zagging rainbow sidewalk piece in the Flatiron District, holiday installations are here. Debuting this month there will also be a series of site-specific works inside the Brooklyn Army Terminal, a giant sculpture with a message about the drug epidemic and so much more. Check out all of the new public art pieces coming to New York City!

When Artists Enter the Factories is a site-specific art exhibition inside the Brooklyn Army Terminal that explores the relationship between manufacturing and art-making. Inspired by the large-scale exhibition, Terminal New York, which was held at this same location in 1983, When Artists Enter the Factories features work from sixteen different artists including Peter AC Nelson, Annesofie Sandal, Ben Sloat and more. Throughout the shows run, viewers are welcome to partake in a range of material and conceptual actions led by artists based in Brooklyn and other parts of the world. Pieces of art will be on display throughout the varied spaces within the US military supply base including the old train tracks in the atrium.
The exhibition will run through November 22, 2019, and will be available for public viewing daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm in October, and to 4:00 pm in November.
