Weekday Sketchers Track Street Art in Hudson Square
This week we explore an installation that walks the line between art and graffiti. We will track the series of commissioned pieces that grace the builds, columns and fences along Varick Street from Canal St to West Houston. We will meet in Alberto Capsouto Park on the small triangle between Canal, Laight and Varick Streets, which offers us a wonderful oasis from the traffic with trees, benches and a water feature. From there we will continue up Varick Street capturing as many of the pieces as we can.
Information on the Art Installation can be found here https://www.hudsonsquarebid.org/artwalk/. If you click on the purple location markers on the map you will see the installations.
