Warm Up at PS 1 - The 2007 Warm Up Courtyard Installation by OBRA Architects

PS 1's Warm Up party lets New Yorkers beat the heat every Saturday afternoon in July and August, by rocking out in Long Island City. The dance party in the museum's courtyard is a highlight of the New York summer. Every summer the music line-up is mixed-up fun, and every year a new architect designs a giant installation for courtyard play.

Hundreds attend each Saturday, and thousands of New Yorkers and out-of-towners will come to Long Island City this summer to party and groove.
