Public Outdoor Art Exhibit on 3rd Street

Posted on September 21, 2020 at 12:04 PM by Tarra Rotstein

This summer 10 unique outdoor art pieces were installed in downtown Manhattan along 3rd street. This art project is part of a grant-funded initiative guided by the City's Arts and Humanities Advisory Board. We are excited to see Manhattan's downtown district brighten up with new art pieces for all to enjoy.

Here's how to enjoy the full outdoor art exhibit. Park in the Blue Earth Plaza area and view art pieces "Re:," by Emily Weiskopf and "Magnify," by Kirk Seese.

Head North one block to Pierre St. and view the art pieces "Red," by Joelle Ford and "TipSee," by Craig Snyder. As you're walking towards Poyntz Avenue don't miss the "Guilder Working the Gears," by Owen Oertling. 

As you're passing the entrance to the Manhattan Town Center be sure to stop and see "Study in Light," by Pat Slimmer and "Fire Tornado," by John Hachmeister. 

Now you are more than halfway through the Public Art Exhibition, on the corner of Humboldt and North 3rd St. find "Palimpset," by V.Skip Willits. 

Go up one block to find the last two art sculptures the "Petrified Combustion," by Alan Tollakson and the "Blooming Planters," by Kati Toivanen. You did it! You completed the Public Art Exhibition reward yourself with some Baskin Robbins or Orange Leaf that is further down on 3rd St. 

Now it's time to turn back around and see the art from a whole new perspective! Be sure to grab some pictures of the Art Exhibit and use the #VisitMHK, you could see your photo reposted on the VisitManhattan Instagram
