3. ‘What a Wonderful World’ in Tribeca Park

What a Wonderful World by Leonard Ursachi in Tribeca Park

Artist Leonard Ursachi has created an installation that he views as “evoking nests, birth, history, and nature.” What a Wonderful World is an 8-foot high by 5.5-foot in diameter egg-shaped sculpture, woven from branches and featuring a sketch of the world map in pigmented cement. The two recessed “embrasures” have a stainless steel mirror set in each, and the piece is set on a 7″ high, circular step. Leonard Ursachi’s What a Wonderful World will be on view until December 15, 2017 at Tribeca Park, which was once part of the Lispenard Swamp. It is located where Beach Street and Avenue of the Americas merge.
