Musa Hixson, Healing Arch
June 21, 2022 to June 17, 2022
Tompkinsville Park, Staten Island
Healing Arch is an 8 ½ foot tall stainless steel sculpture that is inspired by a photo of Eric Garner. The artwork prompts others to stand in the shoes of the humanity of someone like Garner, to experience human love, imagining a hug, or standing in meditation as you take in a view of the surroundings. It gives us an opportunity for pause and reflection. Healing Arch is the result of a long community driven selection process managed by The Friends of Tompkinsville Park to find an artist who could create a symbol to launch their Peace Justice & Healing Community Campaign.
This exhibition is presented by The Friends of Tompkinsville Park.
