Art Is All Around Returns With Two Art Installations, Lunchtime Concert Series

This week the Downtown Alliance’s Art Is All Around campaign returns with two newly installed interactive art pieces — “Optik” and “Roseaux” — plus, later this month, a free lunchtime concert series. The art will be on view through June 21, and the concerts will take place on Wednesdays at 12 p.m., beginning May 17.

“Optik,” on display at Cortlandt Way, was created by the Urban Conga in collaboration with Serge Maheu. “Roseaux,” at 200 Water St., was created by 1ToMn in collaboration with UDO Design and Serge Maheu. And New York-based musician/producer Svetlana Shmulyian is programming the weekly concert series set at both locations. You can check out Shmulyian’s lineup here.
