Summer is in full swing and in New York, which means it’s block party season. Today, art-lovers can rejoice at the New Museum’s Block Party. Anyone enthusiastic about art can look forward to a family-friendly afternoon of workshops, exhibition tours, and numerous interactive projects and performances inspired by the museum’s current exhibits. You can take a swing at creating trading cards featuring underwater sea creatures (inspired by “Ellen Gallagher: Don’t Axe Me”), create kinetic sculptures à la Erika Vogt’s “Stranger Debris Roll Roll Roll,” or make postcards with your own vision of the American ideal like artist Llyn Foulkes. At noon, at Sara D. Roosevelt Park (Chrystie Street between Delancey and Broome streets) and the New Museum.
