Join NYC Parks for the opening reception of Wendy Klemperer’s temporary public art exhibition Shadow Migration.
The exhibition portrays a range of species (a bear, fox, wolf, catamount, among others) that are cut from steel plates and installed throughout the park. Transforming the park into a walk through the wilderness, Klemperer investigates animal populations that were threatened in the 20th century, but are rebounding and showing up in “our backyard.” Not only are wild animals are finding their way into suburban and urban environments as human populations sprawl into their natural habitats, but they are adapting and thriving on the largesse of urban life.
