This weekend, Oct 13-14, The Guggenheim Museum will be hosting the fifth and final edition in the stillspotting nyc series, stillspotting nyc: bronx.

For this installment, Guggenheim has teamed up with Charlie Todd and Tyler Walker of the prankster pop-up theater troupe Improv Everywhere and audiologist Tina Jupiter, to present Audiogram, a unique 65-minute interactive audio experience and theatrical group hearing test designed for the South Bronx. Participants will don mp3 players pre-loaded with sound compositions designed to heighten awareness of city’s latent audio background and wander around the neighborhood’s Joyce Kilmer Park while being led on a sensory journey through city space.

To make things even more exciting, on Saturday October 13, Hyperallergic has partnered with The Guggenheim Museum to host a stillspotting Bronx Art Adventure! We’ll start the day with the final stillspotting nyc event and continue on an art adventure across New York’s northernmost borough, including a trip to the Marcel Breuer-designed Lehman Gallery and a visit to Arthur Avenue, aka Bronx’s Little Italy, and Emilia’s Restaurant for a traditional Italian dinner (with wine!) to cap off the day.
