Spanish artist, Lluis Lleo, has created a series of five sandstone blocks to adorn the Park Avenue medians this season. The twenty-foot tall by six-foot wide “monolithic” blocks will have geometric shapes painted on each side, and will be installed on the Park Avenue malls between 52nd and 56th Streets. Lleo, who is based in New York, is self-funding this installation. The works are scheduled to be installed later this month, and will remain on view through the summer.
