5. Carole Eisner in Prospect Park
The Prospect Park Alliance and New York City Art in the Parks Program have installed four sculptures created by artist Carole Eisner. These pieces are part of Eisner’s series created over the past ten years from i-beams, and are installed in four locations throughout the park.
Dancer, a seventeen-foot tall sculpture can be found at the entrance facing Grand Army Plaza; Zeroes, six and a half feet tall, is on the lawn in front of the historic Litchfield Villa on Fifth Street; Skipper, thirteen-feet tall can be found at the entrance to the park from Bartel-Pritchard Square; and Valentine II, a heart-shaped form, will be found on the Peninsula in front of the lake. The i-beam series was created from scrap and recycled metal, and will be on view in Prospect Park through May, 2017.
