Archway Art Project

It’s Fort Tryon Park’s 85th anniversary in 2020, so the Fort Tryon Park Trust, the park’s conservancy partner with NYC Parks, invites you to celebrate this big year! The park’s archways are a key component of the Olmsted Brothers’ design for our national landmark, Fort Tryon Park. We’ve made special Grab & Go Archway Art kits for kids, to help them creatively connect to the park’s anniversary!

Given limited availability, we are making these Archway Kits available first to our Family Members.

Each kit includes the supplies your child will need to make their own archway art, using materials that echo the rustic textures and contrasts of Fort Tryon Park. This adorable creation can then be used as a picture frame of a favorite memory made in the park! Local artist Jessica Maffia has also provided a video to help you and your child in this art-making activity.
