13. Mass Medium on the Broadway Mall by the Garment District Alliance
Sculpture entitled ‘Enki’, located on Broadway between 36th and 37th Streets
The Garment District Alliance continues on its creative track of choosing art that blends in with our urban environment. In conjunction with Arterventions (part of the New York City Department of Transportation’s Art Program) the current installation, Mass Medium was created by renowned sculpture artist Harry H. Gordon. His five works collectively weigh 102,000 pounds and were created from fine Pennsylvania black granite. His choice of medium, granite, was a good choice, since Manhattan is largely a protrusion of this rock, rising a few hundred feet from sea-level. Beginning at 41st Street, moving south to 36th Street on Broadway, Mass Medium is made up of five sculptures that will be on view through April 15.
