Uni DRAW at Bowling Green as part of “Shared Streets”

August 13, 2016, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come find the Uni in two historic locations in Lower Manhattan as a part of a new initiative called “Shared Streets,” building upon NYCDOT’s popular car-free Summer Streets program. Uni READ will be in front of Federal Hall, birthplace of American government (on Wall St @ Broad St), and Uni DRAW will be set up at Bowling Green in front of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in the former Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House building, just south of the Charging Bull and adjacent to Battery Park.

At Uni DRAW, a pop-up drawing studio, find high-quality art materials offered in the midst of historic buildings for your sketching pleasure, with activities contributed by the NMAI, the Skyscraper Museum, NYC artists, illustrators, architects and others.

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 600 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
 
For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
