Luxury American fashion house Calvin Klein have revealed its plans to sponsor a new exhibit dedicated to art in Central Park, NYC, titled 'Drifting in Daylight'...

Calvin Klein is sponsoring the Drifting in Daylight, presented presented by the public arts organisation Creative Time, and Central Park Conservancy. The exhibit will serve as a springtime celebration of art, which be showcased through New York's Central Park for a unique pop-up.

The exhibition is free to attend and will open May 15, running until June 20. Co-curated by Cara Starke and Nato Thompson, the six-weekend will run on Fridays and Saturdays only from noon to 6pm.

Artists including Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Spencer Finch, Alicia Framis, Nina Katchadourian, Ragnar Kjartansson, David Levine, Karyn Olivier and Lauri Stallings will invite visitors to explore the Northern Central Park landscape with new eyes. "Eight artists have conjured eight alluring, challenging interpretations of our everyday park experience. Drifting in Daylight invites the public on a springtime stroll of artworks that punctuate and playfully mimic New York's urban oasis." Noted Starke, director of exhibitions at Creative Time.

Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer of Calvin Klein said: “We are honored to be able to take part in such an exciting event, which both showcases and supports New York City alongside Creative Time,” adding that the American fashion house is excited to be celebrating the Central Park Conservancy's 35th anniversary “by supporting the initiative and bringing visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in these incredible works of art within one of the world’s most iconic parks.”

To celebrate the cultural partnership, Calvin Klein womenswear creative director Francisco Costa and menswear creative director Italo Zuccelli, will host a special invitation-only dinner in NYC on May 14.
