Couples and lovers of New York, register beginning June 12 to participate in Celebrate LOVE: A (Re)Wedding, a group wedding celebration. Also in June, a site-specific, evening-long performance sweeps across the campus in honor of Juneteenth; and in July, an immersive theater event, QUINCE en la Plaza, welcomes guests to experience the festive rite of passage.

Remember our losses and collectively heal through art

Summer for the City honors and celebrates the lives of iconic individuals across the arts including James Baldwin and Greg Tate.
