NYC Parks celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Art in the Parks program with a festival of art exhibits, performances, and hands-on art workshops. Inspired by the fleeting, free-flowing art “happenings” that popped up in parks across the city in the 1960s, “It’s Happening” will capture the same spontaneous spirit with approximately 50 performances and workshops, and 50 pieces of public artwork on display. The field will be transformed into a stage, museum, and art studio for sculpture, poetry, modern dance, crafts, and music for art lovers of all ages to enjoy.
