First Look: Lincoln Center Reimagined With Grass and New Performance Spots

Lincoln Center is preparing for weeks of outdoor concerts and performances in a program called Restart Stages, and artist Mimi Lien has covered the central Josie Robertson Plaza in a field of green. It’s actually a soy-based product that looks like grass. One tipster likened it to a “mini-golf” course.

There are other changes in the works too, and Lincoln center is planning to hold events in all sorts of unique spots — including having performers indoors or on balconies play to people gathered outside. The shows will start on Monday, May 10. The Restart Stages homepage is here and people can sign up for a ticket lottery here.

New York Times reporter Michael Paulson shared some more photos and insight on Twitter:

      Will there be restroom facilities for concertgoers? Michael Paulson says the buildings are closed.

        There will be restrooms available for patrons who attend these outdoor shows. The 10pm curfew will remain in effect also.
