This spring, City as Living Laboratory (CaLL) continues its BROADWAY: 1000 Steps project with a series of walking dialogues between artists and scientists. CaLL began conducting walks along Broadway in 2011 at the invitation of the Municipal Art Society. Building on earlier walks that have spanned the 18 mile length of Broadway, these WALKS will focus on three hubs of the avenue: Broadway and Houston, Columbus Circle, and Broadway/ 241 Street, Van Cortlandt Park. The artist/scientist teams will discuss, between themselves and the public, a variety of environmental challenges along the Broadway corridor, with particular focus on surrounding neighborhoods.

The WALKS will occur on two weekends, May 3 and May 17 and 18, beginning late morning through early afternoon. A day's schedule will include two artist/ scientist led tours lasting one hour each.


The CaLL/WALKS have been made possible with generous support from the Agnes Gund Foundation, The Greenwich Collection, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Edward John Noble Foundation, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and Theatrum Mundi.
