Situated on the Park Avenue Malls between East 52nd Street and East 79th street are five immense art pieces that make up Tony Cragg’s Monumental Sculptures. These sculptures are located at 52nd, 57th, 67th, 72nd, and 79th Streets, and both enhance and stand out from the surrounding urban landscape. The pieces are made out of materials such as fiberglass, stainless steel, and bronze, and are meant to “defy gravity while giving the impression of upward motion and kinetic energy. In 2015, Tony Cragg had an installation in Madison Square Park.
