The 2019 Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit



A 1962 Washington Square Arts Festival find.

The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibition is a twice-a-year happening every Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day weekend. Next up ~ August 31st, September 1st and 2nd, and again on September 7th and 8th.

The Event showcases fine artists and craft artisans from around the world. This sidewalk show has its venue on University Place, starting at East 13th Street and continuing south along the east side of Washington Square Park to West 3rd Street. The southern end of the show encompasses Schwartz Plaza between NYU’s Shimkin Hall and Bobst Library. We included a few images of our ‘find’ over the years.

The Fall 2019 Artists and Site Map lists Fine Arts, Photography, Sculpture, and Crafts in alphabetical order, along with a Map and where to find each Artist.
