Lots from FWY in NYC!

PCP's FriendsWithYou are coming to NYC this week in a BIG way. If your in the city, be sure to check these events out!

RAINBOW CITY at The High Line Park section 2, Wednesday June 8th at 11am!

At 11am on June 8th FWY will spread their Magic, Luck and  Friendship across the big apple by brining the art installation “Rainbow City” to the High Line, in celebration of the park’s Section 2 opening! The High Line was built in the 1930s, as part of a massive
public-private infrastructure project, later abandoned, and now it is being preserved as a landmark and historic structure! The elevated public park lays over 30 feet above ground level, adjacent to The Lot at 30th street where “Rainbow City” will take place. The installation is presented by AOL, and will be open from June 8th to July 5th. Inaugurating in the art district of Chelsea, this will be FWY’s first large-scale installation in New York City. “Rainbow City” will feature an exclusive pop-up shop where limited edition products designed by FWY for AOL will be available. Featuring custom designs reflecting the colorful spirit of the show, the merchandise range includes t-shirts, tote bags, coloring books, cloisonne pins, iPhone skins and more. Sam And Tury of FriendsWithYou, alongside AOL, will also be participating in educational art programs designed for kids around the city all summer long. Stop by and explore the giant 16,000 square foot playground!
