Find a sense of still and quiet in the city that never sleeps with "sound art" this summer. As part of The Gugghenheim's Stillspotting NYC series, Justin Bennett and Matthea Harvey have created a 90-minute walking tour that melds ambient sound, calming seaside sights, and the fantastical history of Antonio Meucci, the unacknowledged inventor of the first telephone and other whimsical inventions. The tour is being offered for four weekends this summer, the final two are on July 28–29 and August 4–5, 2012.
