Take a look at new art installations coming to 10 parks this June, thanks to the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant!
Announced last September, the project builds on NYC Parks’ equity initiatives by bringing public art exhibits to parks that have historically lacked cultural programming. For more information about the grant, please visit our r Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant page.
Patricia Cazorla and Nancy Saleme, Flying High for Equality
Joyce Kilmer Park
Inspired by American novelist Richard Bach’s bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Patricia Cazorla and Nancy Saleme will use oversized, colorful sculptures of the city’s sparrows as a metaphor for the search for equality. Sparrows are creatures of resilience, audacity, intelligence, and beauty that mirror many of the qualities of New York City’s communities.
