New York is a city of parades. It's almost 2 months away from Halloween, but the Third Annual ART PARADE held Saturday, September 8th made it look like Halloween on a mid summer-like afternoon. Whatever "art" they were trying to express, the parade was fun to watch. Deitch Projects, Creative Time and Paper Magazine sponsored the third annual Art Parade in SOHO. The parade route began on Houston through West Broadway, and ended on Grand Street. Following the success of the past two Art Parades, artists, performers and designers created floats, placards, portable sculptures, kites, balloons, performances and street spectacles. The Art Parade was co-produced by Creative Time, New York's premiere presenter of art in the public realm and Paper Magazine, the definitive guide to downtown fashion and culture.
