Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to take an art walk along Hudson Square BID’s new public art initiative, Hudson Square Canvas on Varick Street. Featuring five original artworks by four artists, this public urban art gallery highlights Hudson Square’s grand architecture and creative energy. The tour will discuss the artwork as well as the unique challenges and purpose of creating art in the public realm, and how public art lends itself to a neighborhood wide place-making initiative. The tour will be led by a member of Hudson Square BID staff. You can explore the canvases through this digital map. On the tour, guests are encouraged to look for the blue squares on the street for photo opportunities and post your experiences to social #hudsonsquarecanvas

Hudson Square is an energizing and vibrant neighborhood of digital wizards, brilliant broadcasters, talented trendsetters, serious scientists and global brand beacons. It is where ambition meets action. Purpose-built and on a human scale, Hudson Square is engaging, inventive, industrious and vibrant. Since 2009, the Hudson Square Business Improvement District (BID) has brought the creative energy from inside our neighborhood’s buildings out onto the streets with the creation of our innovative outdoor spaces and community programs.
