VISITORS NOTE: The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit is NOT in Washington Square Park.
The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit is a twice-a-year happening every Memorial Day Weekend and the weekend that follows and every Labor Day Weekend and the weekend that follows that.
The event showcases fine artists and craft artisans from around the New York metropolitan area, the nation and the world. Attendees come from all over and are a cosmopolitan mix, including art lovers, tourists, faculty and students from the area's many schools and professionals such as interior designers.
Our show is a sidewalk show, not a street fair, and has its venue on University Place, starting at East 13th Street and continuing south along the east side of Washington Square Park to West 3rd Street. The southern end of the show encompasses Schwartz Plaza, (aka Bobkin Lane), between NYU's Shimkin Hall and Bobst Library.
Exhibit Hours: Noon - 6 p.m. every show day

DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT THE 2020 SPRING SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
We are saddened to see how this terrible disease has impacted our show and artists. At this time, we are planning to proceed with the Fall 2020 show as planned. We hope to celebrate the vibrancy of art in the Village once again.
If you have registered for spring, please contact John DiBiase to arrange to have your booth fee applied toward the fall show. All artists exhibiting in the fall will also receive a $25 credit toward their booth fees.
