New Public Art Exhibition in Highbridge Park Coordinated with the Opening of the High Bridge
According to Visual Arts News Desk, "NYC Parks will host a public art exhibition of contemporary sculpture...'Consider the Chair' will be on view through November 8, 2015 in Highbridge Park located in northern Manhattan. The sculptures will be placed along the esplanade leading up to the High Bridge, which opened to the public on June 9, 2015.
This exhibition is sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Rockaway Artist Alliance. Art is provided by 14 Sculptors, a group of professional artists, who have been actively exhibiting throughout the metropolitan area, creating a forum for experimental sculpture and principally installation artworks free from the constraints of a commercial viewpoint. This non-profit tax exempt organization has been functioning under the auspices of the New York Foundation for the Arts for the past 42 years.
NYC Parks' Art in the Parks program has consistently fostered the creation and installation of temporary public art in parks throughout the five boroughs. Since 1967, collaborations with arts organizations and artists have produced hundreds of public art projects in New York City parks. For more information visit www.nyc.gov/parks/art."
