Though it may seem that Armory Week and Frieze Week get all the action, the reality is that there is never a dull moment in the New York art world. From the East Side to the West Side (and, in the summer, out on Long Island’s East End), there’s always something happening at the city’s museums, galleries, and various event spaces. This week was no exception.
The SculptureCenter‘s Annual Long Island City Block Party
Spilling out of the museum and onto Purves Street, the SculptureCenter’s annual block party on Saturday, August 20, was a hit. Activities included a quilt-making project by Emma Banay Dave Scanlon’s Quilt Music group, and a food stand by artist Sydney Shen, who invited guests to fill brown paper bags with chocolate, dried fruit, and candied worms.
