Outdoor Art Exhibits Around New York City This Summer

New York City isn’t exactly know as a place for outdoor enthusiasts. Many of the best reasons to visit or live in New York–galleries, museums, restaurants, shopping, theater–are indoors. But if you prefer to spend the warm summer months with the sun shining on your face (we don’t blame you!) there are still many ways to enjoy New York outdoors, too. One of our favorites is touring the city’s many outdoor art events that take place each summer season. Here’s a quick rundown of a few of the best.

The High Line.
The High Line is always a sure bet for art lovers and fresh air fanatics alike. This summer’s art installation, Wanderlust, features sculptural works centered around a theme of exploration and adventure by a variety of artists.

PsychoBarn at the Met.
This year’s exhibit on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is unlike anything you’ve ever seen … at least in real life. Artist Cornelia Parker has created her rendition of the iconic Batse Hotel from the movie Psycho.
