Students Create 8 Sculptures for NYC Waterfront
Friday, April 27, 2012
Eight new sculptures created by students of a top New York City art school will be installed along the Hudson River.
The works by the Art Students League of New York will replace seven monumental sculptures that were created under the Model to Monument program last year.
They will go up in Riverside Park South between 59th and 70th Streets sometime in June. The works explore the theme of "flux."
The public art project, a partnership with the city's parks department, is in its second year.
The students in the nine-month program are trained in the process of creating site-specific three-dimensional public art.
Sculptor Greg Wyatt leads the program. He's the sculptor-in-residence at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in Upper Manhattan.
