Take a stroll through the neighborhood and check out these three new outdoor art exhibits this weekend—and, yes, all are free:
Monday-Saturday 11am-5pm through December 6
Washington Heights The Hispanic Society Museum & Library, Audubon Terrace, Broadway between W 155th and W 156th Sts
Explore the museum's treasures—Goya! El Greco! Velázquez!—which have been reproduced for this outdoor installation in the majestic front terrace. Each artwork also has its own free audio guide you can download on your phone.
Saturday, September 26 at 7:30pm
Central Harlem Settepani, 196 Malcolm X Blvd and 120th St
In this outdoor event, a group of Harlem artists will be projecting their work—"a response to challenging times"—in 15 minutes loops on Saturday night. Attendees feeling peckish can grab a drink and a bite at nearby Settepani, one of the sponsors of the show.
Opens Sunday, September 27
Central Harlem Jackie Robinson Park, Bradhurst Ave and 145th St
Part of the citywide Photoville festival, this free outdoor photo exhibit centers around Black joy and is inspired by poetry and music by artists such as Gwendolyn Brooks and Stevie Wonder.
