On multiple platforms, NYC-ARTS aims to increase awareness of New York City’s nonprofit cultural organizations, whose offerings greatly benefit residents and visitors—from children to adults, and teenagers to senior citizens.
NYC-ARTS promotes cultural groups’ activities and events to tri-state, national and international audiences through nonprint media, using new technologies as they develop. Through web sites, television, mobile applications and social media, NYC-ARTS nurtures New York City’s position as a thriving cultural capital of the world, one that has both world renowned institutions and those that are focused on local communities.
NYC-ARTS is growing, and your NYC cultural IQ just went up! Connect, install, subscribe, follow, like, bookmark and link to NYC-ARTS at the following extensions of the NYC-ARTS brand.
We just installed a gorgeous new Lightbox exhibit, Edge of Manhattan at the Bowling Green Station on the 4/5 lines, featuring the work of fine art photographer Jay Fine. Fine, who lives near the station, focused his lens on the watery sights and scenes of Lower Manhattan. The exhibit showcases the places one sees at the edge of the city, from a marching band on a pier, to a solitary walk alongside the river to a stupendous lighting strike above the Statue of Liberty. Fine takes advantage of a high-rise vantage point to capture the shifting light and weather in NY Harbor. This Lightbox Project will be on view for one year, and was made possible with the support of Duggall Visual Solutions.
