Higher EAST Facet, NY — Two concurrent occasions will hit Madison Avenue this weekend: an yearly gallery stroll and an art exhibition that is brightening store home windows.

Madison Avenue Art & Style Weekend began Friday and proceeds by means of Sunday, sponsored by the avenue’s business advancement district. It includes window shows in 8 distinctive storefronts with approximately 100 pieces of artwork developed by learners from the University of Visual Arts.

This is extra information about both occasions:

Artwork & Design Weekend

Dubbed “Windows Open to the Sky,” the window displays adorn previously vacant windows, which have been donated by their landlords in order to be part of the exhibition.

Artworks concentration on “a metropolis coming again from the COVID-19 pandemic, from antique sleds transformed into modern day cars to specifically-developed bicycles stamped with optimistic messages.

The artworks are set up at the next addresses:

  • 698 and 700 Madison Ave. (between East 62nd-63rd streets)
  • 777, 779 and 781 Madison Ave. (in between East 66th–67th streets)
  • 1015 Madison Ave. (among East 78th-79th streets)

The installations will stay on view via Tuesday.
