Honestly, what could be better than spending time in Central Park surrounded by talented artists and enjoying the weather while benefiting a great cause? If you're having trouble picturing something nicer than the image I just put in your head, that's perfect... time to buy your ticket to this year's Horticultural Society of New York Block Party.
Block party evokes an image of hanging out on your stoop, but trust us, The Horticultural Society's party is several rungs higher on the awesome ladder. The event will revolve around a silent art auction and rooftop soiree at the Central Park Arsenal that benefits the HSNY's GreenHouse program which provides vocational training and horticultural therapy to inmates on Rikers Island. As if the DJ Dub-L, MC Miss Info, rooftop chilling and an open bar weren't enough, street art giants KAWS and HAZE (as well as many other artists) have contributed original works to the auction! Grab tickets here right now because the event is this coming Monday.
