2. Rufus King Park in Queens Finds Common Ground

“Common Ground” by artist, Risa Puno, located at Rufus King Park in Queens

The artist, Risa Puno, has created a way to literally bring people together with her installation, Common Ground. The colorful, adjacent tabletops celebrate the diverse community that shares Rufus King Park in Queens in front of the King Manor Museum. With this installation, Puno focuses on harmony through diversity in a park that once was the home to statesman and lawyer, Rufus King – son of a wealthy lumber merchant.

Common Ground is part of the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, bringing art installations to ten parks this June.
