Later this month, FLOW will return to Randall’s Island Park to provide NYC’s communities with art and performances to experience throughout the summer. Dubbed FLOW.15, this is the fifth incarnation of the public arts event, and promises to be a truly enriching experience for attendees.
The summer-long event is made possible by a collaboration between various cultural organizations and green space alliances. According to its website, “The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum of the Arts and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW annual summer art exhibitions along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park.” These three organizations have worked cooperatively over the last few years to create an event that stands out among the droves of other artistic programming in NYC, and is also unique to the beautiful 4.5-mile shoreline of Randall’s Island Park.
According to the event description, FLOW features site specific projects by participating artists, and is “aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Experiencing outdoor art in New York City is always such a treat, and FLOW is designed to allow visitors to interact with and contemplate not only with the art on display, but the environment in which it resides as well.
This summer, you can expect to see a whole range of art from Sharon Ma, Rica Takashima, Rob Swainston, Nicholas Fraser, and David J. Wilson. Each of the artists has a unique vision and artistic background, but were all invited to participate in FLOW.15 because of their involvement in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists. Visit the FLOW website to learn more about each of the artists that is participating in this year’s incredible arts event.
FLOW opens on Saturday, May 30 at 1:00pm.
