Throughout the year, RIPA hosts over 200 free public events including tours, movie nights, waterfront activities, our annual Cherry Blossom and Harvest Festivals and more. These family-friendly drop-in events play an integral role in helping Park visitors explore the Island’s varied points of interest. We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals to engage fully.

Can photography change how we see our surroundings? What comprises a beautiful photograph? How can photography and history interrelate?
Join FLOW.17 artist Rose DeSiano to address these questions, and take some photographs of your own! Learn about this year’s FLOW art pieces, discuss some of Randall’s Island’s history, and talk about photographic composition and story-telling. Bring your camera or camera phone (RIPA will also offer a few instant film cameras to borrow for the event) and spend the afternoon capturing Island images that you can take home with you. We hope you’ll return throughout the year to continue your photographic journey on Randall’s Island.
This event is free and family-friendly. All are welcome!
*The FLOW art series is planned in conjunction with the Randall’s Island Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum and the New York Department of Parks and Recreation.
