Sohhee Oh, Lovie Pignata, and Moses Ros, Art in Concrete Plant Park
September 28, 2018 to September 27, 2019
Concrete Plant Park, Bronx
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
Artists Sohhee Oh, Lovie Pignata, and Moses Ros have installed public artworks along the length of Concrete Plant Park. The Communal Bench by Sohhee Oh is an uncommonly long bench made out of painted concrete blocks with images of native plants from the Foodway—materials that unify the conflicting history of the site. Pignata installed three geometric designs created with large, painted concrete pavers. Bronx River Native references the borough’s original inhabitants, the Mohegan, as well as its current residents. Ros’ Paradise Trail uses a series colorful flags to guide the public between the entrances at Westchester Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard. The flag designs were created with input from the community and celebrate the river, the Foodway, and the community’s heritage.
Funding for this project was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as part of an initiative to create health-inspired public art installations that encourage park use and strengthen community connections.
This exhibition is part of Art in the Parks: Active Open Space presented by the Bronx River Alliance, with the Department for Health and Mental Hygiene, the Fund for Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
