8. Ascension on the Corner of 36th Street and Ninth Avenue
Ascension by artist Jordan Baker-Caldwell
The corner of 36th Street and Ninth Avenue will become the permanent home to artist Jordan Baker-Caldwell‘s nine-foot tall sculpture entitled Ascension. The large tubular form, made of weathered steel, will be installed on August 9th in partnership with Hell’s Kitchen/Hudson Yards Alliance. Sitting at an odd angle, it is meant to challenge the viewer’s sense of spatial awareness, creating a quiet moment of contemplation amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Mr. Baker-Caldwell currently has a mixed-media sculpture entitled Golem on view in Marcus Garvey Park through August 31.
