Julie Farris and Sarah Wayland-Smith, both with backgrounds in landscape design, were commissioned by the Public Art Fund to design and build this temporary public installation in downtown New York’s Collect Pond Park. A Clearing in the Streets is a living urban meadow partially enclosed by a series of plywood panels, measuring 15 feet in diameter. It’s an attempt to “re-insert” nature into the concrete jungle while allowing people on the street an opportunity to re-evaluate how they relate to their urban surroundings.

One of our most popular and fun activities is our Chelsea Gallery Hop. On our second night in town, armed with a list of gallery openings, a big bunch of us meet at a pre-determined street corner in the Chelsea Art District – and away we go into the art-fueled night! This is a great opportunity to let loose with your fellow Roadtrippers and mix it up with local gallery goers!number of view: 865
NYC Roadtrip is social art on the move. Ever evolving at the confluence of relational aesthetics, psychogeography and DIY culture, it’s an opportunity for fun-lovin’ adventure-seekers to network, get inspired, conduct creative field research and experience everyday urban life in unusual ways; explore the non-touristy, local nuances of New York City; and plug into a vibrant travel community unlike any other.
After each NYC Roadtrip, passengers and crew are invited to participate in NYC Retro Show: a multimedia exhibition of individual and group perspectives on various New York City-inspired subjects, such as the mapping of moments; organized chaos; the artist as wanderer; “street art, street life”; the urban playground; and collective myth-making.
No matter what your background or passion – photography, architecture, painting, scrapbooking, film, performance; student, professional, hobbyist, novice – this is a chance to make the most of your New York City experience. Don’t just go on vacation. Go on a creative mission.number of view: 523
