Take a look at new art installations coming to 10 parks this June, thanks to the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant!

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.
