Asia Society at Summer Streets
Saturday Aug 5, 2023
8 am–1 pm
Arts and Culture Rest Stop at Park Avenue and 51st Street
Asia Society New York is returning to Summer Streets this year! Come visit their booth at the Arts and Culture Rest Stop, just down the open street from their building at 725 Park Avenue, for a morning of crafts, activities, giveaways, and sneak previews of what they have in store for the fall and beyond.
Their booth will include a special craft with origami artist Sam Ita, themed giveaways and raffle prizes, and more information about their upcoming Meiji Modern exhibition and ongoing Year of Japan. They’ll be back at Summer Streets on August 19, in the same location, with a brand-new activity.
Summer Streets takes place on select Saturdays between 7 am and 1 pm where miles of city streets are open for people to play, walk, and bike. Take a break along the route at one of their rest stops to enjoy free activities, healthy recreation, and the use of more sustainable forms of transportation. Summer Streets is a project of the New York City Department of Transportation and an annual celebration of the city's most valuable public space – our streets.
