Birdwatching |
Experience the beauty of the Park in winter while you help collect valuable data and learn about birds when you participate in this annual event with the National Audubon Society. The Christmas Bird Count is a citizen-science tradition started by ornithologist Frank Chapman in 1900 and the longest-running wildlife annual census. The data you collect is used to assess the health of bird populations and guide conservation action in the Park and beyond. Each group is led by an experienced birder. Dress warmly and remember to bring your binoculars.

Working mainly in the field of sculpture, Bove has been making sculptural installations that range from small-scale, intimate arrangements of objects to monumental outdoors artworks. In the early 2000s, Bove made a series of wall-mounted shelves, which contained disparate elements, such as used books, vintage magazines, vernacular sculptures, and found objects. Alongside these intimate installations, Bove has recently been working on larger compositions which often take over the entire exhibition space, turning the gallery into a landscape or a vitrine. For the project, Bove continues her research on the role and function of art in the public space, by creating seven new sculptures which are installed within the self-seeded landscape. Bove’s site-specific installation highlights the uniqueness of its location and opens a magical environment for viewers. Installed along a 300-yard stretch of the untouched terrain, Bove’s sculptures reveal themselves among the unruly vegetation, like mysteriously pristine ruins of a lost civilization or a contemporary version of a Zen garden. Tour times: 10 AM, 11 AM, 12PM, 2PM, 3PM.

Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system.
