NEW YORK CITY—Coming this May, eight artists will install their work around Randall's Island in a public art project called Frieze New York. To promote the project, Mulberry will be handing out bespoke tote bags containing newspapers filled with Frieze information and maps. They've also selected local art students to receive tours of the island. The project runs May 4 through 7, with totes available at all three Mulbery boutiques—in Soho, the West Village, and on Madison Avenue—starting April 30. [RackedWire]
