Sun’s out fun’s out: spring art events you won’t wanna miss

The birds are going bananas, the trees are budding, and the Peeps are back along the checkout line—spring is officially on. Incoming warm weather means more motivation to leave your den and live a little, but while you’re planning your debut picnic day of the season don’t forget to pencil in these artsy goings-on. Exhibition openings, new installations, and interactive artworks abound. We’ll certainly be taking advantage of all the art in the air. Our schedules are full of art events and our pockets are full of Easter candy. It’s a lifestyle. — Team 20x200


 
A peek at Lindsey Warren's upcoming solo show at Keystone Art Space

Welcome by Lindsey Warren
  • SoCal didn’t have to endure a real winter, so if you ask us, it’s kind of unfair that they get a first look at Lindsey Warren’s recent work IRL. Wish we could stop by her solo show, Native, at LA’s Keystone Art Space from April 13th-21st.
  • How about a Jen Hewett fabric printing class? Folks in the Bay Area can sign up for block printing in March or screen printing in April. Book yours before they sell out!

Hudson Yards' Vessel

    • Everybody’s talking ‘bout Hudson Yards’ Vessel, but for those of us on the East River Bridge Over Tree is beautifying Brooklyn Bridge Park. Thanks to Public Art Fund, Siah Armajani’s immersive artwork is poppin’ up right down the road from our HQ.

    • Ky Anderson’s one of three New York-based artists in an upcoming group show at NJ’s Gold / scopophilia, March 23rd-April 20th.
    • We’ll be making moves to MOCAD before April 14th to catch Parallels and Peripheries, the first exhibition under the direction of the museum’s newly appointed Senior Curator, Larry Ossei-Mensah (who also happens to be one of our very own 5+5 contributors).

    Pretty sure this makes Mark Ulriksen's 62nd New Yorker cover?

    • Don’t miss Aili Schmeltz’s art in a group exhibition all about suburbia: Shady Acres, at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art through May 25th.
    • The Cleveland Museum of Art trains its lens on Gordon Parks’ pioneering early work in a new show running for a wide swath of this spring—March 23rd through June 9th.
    • The foremother of modern abstract art—Hilma Af Klint—is still blowing minds at the Guggenheim through April 23rd.
