It's summertime in NYC, and the neighborhood block is sweltering with rising temperatures. A trip to the beach or the waterpark would take several hours in traffic. The locals are getting restless. Suddenly, there's a crown of ice cold water shooting into the air. Kids and adults from surrounding neighborhoods dash toward the cascading spray and dance under the shower from a freshly opened fire hydrant that was retrofitted with a special cap for just this occasion.

Nelson celebrates the century-old summertime metropolitan tradition of turning fire hydrants into sprinklers with SUMMERTIME CITY.

Kadir Nelson

Kadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
