Times Square Arts, the public art program of the Times Square Alliance, is the largest public platform for innovative contemporary performance and visual arts. With 400,000 daily visitors to New York City’s Times Square, it is one of the highest profile public arts programs and since its inception, Times Square Arts has featured works by a diverse group of more than five dozen prominent and emerging artists.
Working as a cultural hub in partnership with cultural institutions, festivals and district stakeholders, the program realizes ambitious collaborations that make use of the district’s distinctive assets—the electronic billboards, the outdoor plazas and its quirky and eclectic indoor venues and passageways. As the success of a great public space is the design, management and program, Times Square Arts makes a commitment to offering public programming throughout the year that engages our local and international visitors with the creativity, energy and edge that has made Times Square an icon for over one hundred years.
