City Pulse

pf1.jpg When’s the last time you got a tan at an art gallery? Dug your toes in the sand of your favorite nightclub? What if I told you about an urban beach? A place where you can enjoy being in the sun with your friends, contemporary art, live music and a diverse group of people.

P.S.1 an affiliate of MoMA is one of the largest non-profit art centers in the U.S. Every summer P.S.1 launches their Warm Up series, an event housed within an architectural installation and celebrated by live performances and DJ sets from around the world. Select architecture firms are asked to create their interpretation of an urban beach. This year Work Architecture Company created P.F.1 (Public Farm One) – a working farm, with a variety of vegetables and plants. P.F.1 will act as an interactive bridge between outside and inside, with multiple zones of activity and a refreshing pool at its center.

You can enjoy the day for a mere $10, not including the inevitable drink tickets you’ll want to purchase since the event is partially sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery. So forget waking up early for the long trek to the beach, sleep in and head over to P.S.1 for a different kind of afternoon at the beach.

Visit for Warm Up 2008 line-up and directions.

WHEN: Every Saturday, 3pm – 9pm, now through September 6th
