16. Gillie & Marc Bring a Table of Love to Park Avenue

Gillie & Marc are back in New York City, this time with the ultimate selfie for Valentine’s Day: The Table of Love. The sculpture is installed as part of Gillie & Marc’s art project, Travel with Love, which features 100 sculptures installed in 100 cities across the world. It is their response to the plight of refugees and immigrants as well as the overall sociopolitical climate we find ourselves in today.
“The inviting installation of the Table of Love on Park Avenue offers a unique step towards opening dialogue towards a kinder, more understanding culture,” says RXR’s Chief Operating Officer, Richard Connie. As such, the sculpture presents the story of two opposites coming together to become ‘best friends and soul mates.’ According to the installation press release, the figures symbolize the acceptance of ‘all people as one’ since they do not have a definitive race or religion.
The Table of Love, featuring Rabbitgirl and Dogman at a Table of Love, sits on a landing located at 237 Park Avenue, enter on 46th Street just west of Lexington Avenue. Also, nest up for Gillie & Marc;s Statues for Equality arriving in New York City sometime this year.
