Saturday May 16th
Two Events Today:
1. Drifting in Daylight: (early afternoon)
(Outdoors - See Rainy Day Note below)
This Saturday at noon, Creative Time and Central Park Conservancy will unveil Drifting in Daylight, a dreamy springtime pathway of art winding through the world’s most iconic park. From Ragnar Kjartansson’s ship full of brass-playing dandies circling the Harlem Meer, to dancers from Lauri Stallings’ collective glo weaving magically through the North Woods, we promise you a one-of-a-kind art experience you won’t soon forget!
Begin the experience at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center; enter the park from 110th Street at either 5th Ave. or Malcolm X Blvd. As the centerpiece of Central Park Conservancy’s 35th Anniversary celebration, this free public exhibition aims to draw visitors into the park’s beautiful north end, much of which has been expertly restored by the Conservancy. The six-weekend show will tempt visitors to transcend their busy lives, losing themselves along a playful trail of sensory experiences.

Doors open at 3:30 PM. The good seats go quickly.
Sketching starts at 4 PM and goes to 6:00.
