For two days every year, Open House New York (OHNY) Weekend gives the public a chance to engage more deeply with the built environment and learn about aspects of our city that are hidden in plain sight. This year Percent for Art commissions in two boroughs will be featured in the weekend’s activities on October 12 &13, located in New York Public Library’s Bronx Library Center, and Queens Public Library’s branches in Long Island City and Flushing. The pieces, pictured above, range from architectural elements like Yong Soon Min’s etched glass wall to interior features like Iñigo Manglano Ovalle’s exploration of DNA as a catalog, reflecting the diverse ways permanent art can enhance our public spaces.
Tours of the facilities with library staff and project architects will occur throughout the weekend. Click here to download the event guide and learn more about OHNY Weekend.
