The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center has transformed its once bunker-like setting into a bright and airy destination in the heart of New York City's West Village. Now they are inviting the public to its auditorium for The Pop Art Picnic to experience the newly renovated space that has been outfitted as an indoor park for a day, complete with flowering hedges, sprawling grass, park benches, and a 15-foot tree.

A celebration of The Center's recently completed renovation, they welcome families for a bunch of quirky activities: Pop Art painter and muralist Kenny Scharf will be painting faces and the event will also feature Whitney Museum-led activities, a photo booth, two raffles with the chance to win a Schwinn Bicycle or an Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Can vase, a work of art by Yoshimoto Nara (pictured above), and more.

The event is free and open to the public but requires an RSVP. Saturday, April 11, 2015, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Center's Lerner Auditorium, 3rd floor, 208 W 13 St, New York City.
