Cultural honor for P.S. 1 Art Center

The P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City has been named NYC & Company’s Cultural Organization of the Month for June, which means visitors will be offered two-for-one admission.
“P.S. 1 continually expands the definition of art with its wide-range of culturally engaging exhibits and programs,” NYC & Company Executive Vice President Barbara Lorber said. “From architectural exhibits to music to visual art in all forms, P.S. 1 feeds the imagination and spirit of the visitor.”
By presenting a voucher from NYC & Company or saying “Cultural Organization of the Month” while buying tickets in June, visitors to P.S. 1 will receive two-for-one admission. This does not apply to the “Warm Up” series.
“June at P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center is a time for vacationing visitors, a time for art lovers young and old, and a time for families,” said Alanna Heiss, the founder and director of P.S. 1, which is an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art. “It’s out of school and back to P.S. 1 to start celebrating a summer of pioneering architecture, international musical talent, and exciting throughout the month in honor of being named NYC & Company’s June Cultural Organization of the Month.”
Aside from the various programs, events and exhibitions that P.S. 1 holds throughout the year, it has several special events coming up in June. On Sunday, June 24, there will be an opening celebration for the 2007 summer exhibitions. The summer will include solo shows by Peter Young, Tunga, Jim Shaw and Linder. There will also be a duel exhibition by Dorota Jurczak and Abel Auer. Organizing Chaos will have a group show.
On Wednesday, June 27, P.S. 1 will celebrate its Young Architects Program with the unveiling of the architectural installation Liquid Sky, which was designed by Ball-Nogues Studio.
The Warm Up series will begin on June 30, although two-for-one admission is not available for it. During the event, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., attendees can enjoy live music and DJ acts.
P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center is located at 22-25 Jackson Avenue. For more information, visit www.ps1.org or call 718-784-2084.
