Wayfinding: 100 NYC Public Sculptures is a site-specific project that invites the public to embark on guided journeys through NYC to find public sculptures.

Phunsombatlert researched all existing public sculptures in New York City and identified 100 sites to be incorporated in his final work. He then created small drawings of each sculpture and developed directional signs and maps that resemble standard U.S. National Park Service signage. The artwork is made up of signage for 100 public sculptures that contain distances drawn from GPS coordinates between each sculpture and the group of wooden posts outside of the Queens Museum at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

The audience experiences their own journey to each original sculpture. However, whether visitors view the original sculptures or their drawn representational counterparts, this project calls attention to the very specific, transformative space between object and audience. The exhibition questions how the audience’s journey from the sign to original artwork can be a work of art in itself. Visitors are invited to see the online map. Wayfinding: 100 NYC Public Sculptures is an exciting and rare instance where NYC Parks’ temporary public art program will merge with and inform the permanent sculptures in New York City’s collection.
