Creative set designer Mimi Lien will transform the iconic Josie Robertson Plaza with “The GREEN,” covering approximately 14,000 square feet of the concrete plaza and transforming the outdoor space into a park-like environment that invites New Yorkers and city visitors to relax and enjoy the warm weather. The installation opens on May 10.
This coincides with Restart Stages featuring performances by organizations from across the five boroughs, including Lincoln Center’s resident companies.
Visitors can expect free and low-cost events, an outdoor reading room from The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and a large selection of family programming. The public is invited to a concert and cabaret series by Lincoln Center Theater, film screenings from Film at Lincoln Center, summer concerts from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, dance workshops from New York City Ballet, and performances by the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD!), Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, Harlem Week and the Harlem Arts Alliance, Korean Cultural Center New York, Weeksville Heritage Center, and many more.
Attendees can also participate in a range of civic and community service events such as food and blood drives and state and local voting information.
