A Particular Kind of Solitude, inspired by the writings of Robert Walser and curated by Serra Sabuncuoglu, is a site-specific exhibition engaging more than 50 artists, writers, readers, musicians, dancers and filmmakers. The early twentieth-century Swiss author has become something of a hero, or anti-hero for writers and artists over the last few decades. Much of his work and philosophies rest on the quiet magic and personal fulfillment of walking; the urban experience is full of such walks, and this is often how people discover Elizabeth Street Garden.

Spring Art Exhibition on view Saturday, May 10 – Sunday, June 1
Wednesdays – Sundays, noon – 6 p.m.
