The benefits of living in Lower Manhattan are many. Great museums, history under our every footstep, and free art and music performances year round are among them.
One of the artistic perks available are free classes for adults, children and preschoolers, funded by the Battery Park City Authority and offered in the neighborhood’s various parks from the beginning of May through the end of October.
On Sunday, January 29th, BPC Parks hosted a reception to kick off a two-month exhibition featuring the artwork from classes in nature drawing, studies of the human figure, children’s collage work, and other programs.
“The ability to create should be appreciated by all ages and experience levels, and to that end, BPC Parks programming is proud to have offered the community nearly 300 guided art programs in 2016. Our talented artist educators develop and lead enriching art activities that connect individuals to their surroundings, and each other, in a supportive and nurturing environment. It’s incredibly rewarding to see participants embrace these programs as showcased in the beautiful work on display here at BPC’s Art Exhibition,” said Craig Hudon, director of programming.
The public is welcome to visit the exhibition on weekdays between 2pm and 4pm, at BPC Parks headquarters (75 Battery Place) through March 31.
