The summertime streets of New York are an incredible outdoor museum.  This summer’s installations include Jaume Plensa’s holographic “Echo” at Madison Square Park, and picnic tables designed by public school students placed in parks throughout the five boroughs by Learning through Expanded Arts.

Kate Levin is the commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.  In this role, she directs cultural policy for New York City, supporting and strengthening the city’s cultural life through public funding for nonprofit cultural organizations throughout the five boroughs.
