YC Spotlight: City in the Grass

It is finally summer, school is out, and now you can enjoy a break in the sun! Being young, it may be a little difficult to get a hold of some cash, but if you live in New York City there are a ton of free things to do. You can try hitting up some of your friends and link at a pay-as-you-wish museum and literally pay a dollar–what a steal! Or you can go for a walk in the park.

For years, Madison Square Park has become a major destination for locals and tourists. The green space has collaborated with different artists and has provided space for their art work to be displayed. This summer, Madison Square Park introduced Leonardo Drew’s “City in the Grass,” a project where you too can become part of the art. Join Youth Producers as they discuss the work with visitors.
