Fitzhugh Karol, Field’s Jax Thicket

September 2, 2020 to September 1, 2021
Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum
Pelham Bay Park, Bronx

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

Field’s Jax Thicket, by Brooklyn-based sculptor Fitzhugh Karol, consists of four works created using steel recycled from a previous single large sculpture, now re-conceived as smaller and more interactive sculptures. Previously exhibited at four locations around the DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn, the sculptures are reunited in a playful arrangement on the lawn of the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in Pelham Bay Park. For the Field’s Jax series, Karol worked with nine parts from his monumental sculpture Eyes, which was on view in Staten Island’s Tappen Park in 2017.
