Drifting in Daylight is a dreamy springtime pathway of art that winds through the world’s most iconic park. The multi-part art installation includes performative, participatory, and perceptual work by artists Spencer Finch, Alicia Framis, Nina Katchadourian, Ragnar Kjartansson, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, David Levine, Karyn Olivier, and Lauri Stallings + glo. These works include a soft-serve ice cream truck serving free cones containing ice cream the color of a Central Park sunset, a boat filled with musicians floating on the Harlem Meer, and actors quietly performing moments from iconic movie scenes shot in the park.

As the centerpiece of Central Park Conservancy’s 35th anniversary celebration, this free public exhibition aims to draw visitors into the park’s beautiful north end, much of which has been expertly restored by the Conservancy. The six-weekend show will tempt visitors to transcend their busy lives, losing themselves along a playful trail of sensory experiences.
