Artist Laurence Jenkell’s Candy Nations sculptures have popped in other New York City locations before and this winter make their latest appearance outside the World Trade Center Oculus. Jenkell’s series is made up of oversized candy shaped sculptures emblazoned with the flags of different countries from around the world. The piece was first created for the G20 Summit in Cannes, France in 2011. The sculptures can be found surrounding and inside the Oculus, in front of One and Two World Trade Center, the Millenium Hilton, and St. Nicholas’ Church and inside Liberty Park. The sculptures will be on display until February 28th, 2019.
