Woven throughout the north end, Drifting in Daylight is a free exhibition of eight site-specific artworks that promises to engage all of your senses. Wander through and you might stumble upon the sweet sounds coming from S.S. Hangover—a replica of a 1930's Icelandic fishing boat afloat on the Harlem Meer carrying a brass sextet that serenades you with an original composition.

Or maybe you can catch Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos: a jubilant combination of hip-hop dancers, musicians, and spoken word poetry, using a large "parachute turned revival-tent."

Or maybe you'll experience sunset in Central Park like never before...through your taste buds. Artist Spencer Finch will use a solar powered ice cream truck to recreate the exact hues of the setting sun and serve up delicious soft-serve sunset colored ice cream.

Drifting in Daylight is the centerpiece of Central Park Conservancy’s 35th Anniversary celebration. The exhibit is presented by Central Park Conservancy and CreativeTime.org, a nonprofit public arts organization that works with artists to contribute to the dialogues, debates, and dreams of our times.
