This month, a new Percent for Art permanent public art installation arrived at the Myrtle Avenue Plaza. Created by artist Matthew Geller, the piece, entitled Ought To, brings a bit of shaded seating to the area thanks to its round canopy inset. The installation is made of cortex steel, standing nine-feet tall, with a 14-foot wide canopy that is dotted with colorful cast glass bulbs.

The New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYC DDC) will unveil “I Ought To” on November 4th at the new Myrtle Avenue Pedestrian Plaza, 550 Myrtle Avenue, between Emerson Place and Steuben Street.
