Lady K Fever, All Along the Watchtower

August 1, 2016 to August 31, 2016
Marcus Garvey Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Description:

All Along the Watchtower, an interactive public art installation created by artist Lady K Fever, highlights Marcus Garvey Park’s Acropolis and the pathways that lead to it. Beginning at the top of the staircase on the Madison Avenue side of the park leading up to the Acropolis, it continues along the construction fence surrounding the site of Harlem’s fire watchtower and back down the walkway on the west side of Mount Morris. The installation is made almost entirely of light reflective materials, and guests are encouraged to use a flash while taking photos to activate the artwork. The reflective materials illuminate the pathways at night and reflect the musical patterns of the watchtower’s bell. The historic fire watchtower is currently being restored off site by NYC Parks and will return to its original site in Marcus Garvey Park.

This exhibition is presented by the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance Public Art Initiative.
