Reroute for Art: Summer with Public Art Fund

This summer, Public Art Fund invites commuters, WFH-ers, and tourists alike to “reroute for art” and visit free public art projects around the city to shake up their summer routines.

Whether it’s a quick stop to see Bharti Kher: Ancestor for a midtown lunch break in Central Park, taking a new evening commute from Moynihan Train Hall to visit Kehinde Wiley: Go, or arriving to LaGuardia Airport a few minutes early to experience Sarah Sze: Shorter than the Day, a few minutes can result in meaningful and serendipitous artistic encounters.

Public Art Fund’s summer exhibitions can be experienced for free in outdoor spaces all over the city—including Brooklyn Bridge Park, City Hall Park, Central Hall Park—as well as in major travel ports like Newark International’s new Terminal A, LaGuardia’s Terminal B, and Moynihan Train Hall, making these destinations an easy stop as a part of summer travel plans.

This summer, Public Art Fund will also offer free programming to connect audiences with art in various mediums, with new exhibitions by artists including Nicholas Galanin, Phyllida Barlow, and Felipe Baeza.

Check out the full slate of Public Art Fund summer exhibitions are below, offering possibilities for summer picnics, outdoor dates, travel experiences and more with an artful and inspirational twist . Public Art Fund will also offer suggested itineraries and ideas on social media all summer long.
