Morning Brief: February 10
A large-scale art project will be bringing a new flavor to Central Park in the late Spring. According to the New York Times Magazine, the experience will be happening each Friday and Saturday afternoon from May 15 to June 20, and will include things like an ice cream truck with sunset-colored flavors, recreations of famous movie scenes, and a boat with a brass band navigating the Harlem Meer.
Whatever happens, expect it to make a statement. The public art organization putting on the show, Creative Time, last made a splash with Kara Walker’s “A Subtelty”—that giant sugar sculpture in Brooklyn’s old Domino Sugar Factory.
