Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit

August 30, 2023 Desiree Homer

Take a stroll around the always charming and historic Greenwich Village and stop in at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit for their semi-annual event. The east side of Washington Square Park on University Place will be filled with exciting art exhibits from all over the world.

What started in 1931 with artists Jackson Pollock and Willem DeKooning just trying to pay their rent, the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit has evolved into a sought-after showcase featuring artists who specialize in not only fine arts but also photography, handmade crafts, and sculptures, just to name a few. There’s truly something for all art enthusiasts to see and experience.

Time and Place

September 2nd - 4th and September 9th and 10th

12:00 pm - 6:00 pm every show day

Note: This is a sidewalk show and is NOT located inside Washington Square Park. It runs on the east side of the park, down University Place from East 13th Street to Waverly Place.
