During the first week of Summer TRaC, participants headed downtown to the River to River Festival hosted by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC).

On Wednesday, July 10, TRaC checked out Fluid: Construct, an art installation at One Liberty Plaza, as well as Wally Cardona and Jennifer Lacey’s The Set Up at Pier 15. On Thursday, July 11, TRaC returned to the River to River Festival to catch a breathtaking performance of  This Great Country presented by the 600 HIGHWAYMEN.

The first week of TRaC also marked the launch of the summer’s Map Free City project. Summer TRaC participants will spend the next four weeks traveling all over the five boroughs, seeing FREE arts events, writing about them, and tracking it all on this map.

Join them for the ride by visiting mapfreecity.blogspot.com, liking Teen Reviewers and Critics on Facebook, and following TRaC on Twitter. Keep up with everything TRaC, free, and summer with the hashtag #mapfreecity.
