Daylighting highlights the importance of the concept of waterways, many which are buried under the streets of New York City. Th artwork will be at Virginia Park, located at the intersection of White Plains Road, Westchester Avenue, and the Cross Bronx Expressway, near the Bronx River. The area was originally settled as farmland in 1924. The artist, Love Pignata, was inspired by the architectural and historical elements of the location.
If you haven’t yet seen the Art Students League Models to Monuments Program in Riverside Park, it will be on through June. Many of April and May installations we recommended are still on view. Get in touch with the author at AFineLyne.
