Every summer, New York City’s P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, Queens transforms its courtyard into an outdoor party place. Each Saturday, local (young people?) eat, drink and dance while a D.J. spins tunes from 3 to 9 p.m.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, does something very similar, every Friday, during the summer (and every first Friday, the rest of the year) in its outside courtyard. It’s a great place to mingle, drink, and enjoy the summer weather (and, drink more).
Each year the museum, along with the Museum of Modern Art, hosts a competition to design the space.
