Art Omi: Writers in NYC
Offsite: Nuyorican Poets Cafe (236 E 3rd St, New York, NY 10009)
Come hear readings from the Art Omi writers-in-residence at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC. Distinguished writers from around the globe will share new and in-progress writing produced during their residence at Art Omi. Hear an uncommon variety of writing—provocative, funny, innovative, and surprising literary voices from a range of traditions, all in one place.
This weekly drawing group offers time and space for individuals who wish to continue to hone their drawing skills in an independent environment. Participants work indoors in the light-filled Benenson Visitors Center and gallery or outdoors in the landscape of The Fields sculpture park.

Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in The Fields, Architecture, and the Visitors Center Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
