5. Wreath Interpretations at Central Park Arsenal
The Wreath Interpretations exhibition at Central Park’s Arsenal Gallery features dozens of handcrafted wreaths made of “inventive and unexpected” materials. Artists use everything from caution tape, traffic light reflectors, and safety pins, to bath sponges, rulers, Mardi Gras beads, and sugar meringue! The selection of wreaths explores a wide range of themes, such as family history, volunteerism, endangered animals, and chemistry. Each wreath is accompanied by a short artist statement that describes its meaning. The exhibit is free and open to the public at the Arsenal Gallery on the third floor of NYC Parks’ Headquarters in Central Park, at Fifth Avenue at 64th Street.
