Art in Odd Places 2021

Save to Favorites


  • 9 people are interested

Art in Odd Places is a NYC-based public performance and visual art exhibition. This year's theme, NORMAL, explores the societal unrest of the past year in engaging and interactive (and COVID-safe) ways. Volunteers will help with distributing information and educating passersby on the exhibitions, and are a vital role in our small creative team. All opportunities are unpaid but volunteers will have the opportunity to meet and engage with artists as well as potentially join the creative team in the future. If you're someone who is interested in public art, curious about experimental and interactive art, and eager to engage with the general community reach out to us via the listed email with the subject line "2021 Volunteer"!

Mission Statement

Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.


Art in Odd Places (AiOP) presents visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces. AiOP also produces an annual festival along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October.

Art in Odd Places (AiOP) began as an action by a group of artists led by Ed Woodham to encourage local participation in the Cultural Olympiad of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. In 2005, after moving back to New York City, he re imagined it as a response to the dwindling of public space and personal civil liberties - first in the Lower East Side and East Village, and since 2008, on 14th Street in Manhattan. AiOP has always been a grassroots project fueled by the goodwill and inventiveness of its participants.
