Join NYC Parks and Leonard Ursachi for the opening of hispublic art exhibition What a Wonderful World.

What a Wonderful World is an eight-feet-high egg-shaped sculpture woven from branches, on which the artist sketched a world map with pigmented cement. The form and woven branches may evoke nests, birth, history, and nature, while the map may be read as humanity’s trace. The title may be interpreted as ironic, cautionary, or celebratory, depending on the viewer’s perspective. In addition to examining the impact of borders on individuals and societies, Ursachi’s art often addresses the impact of people and their governments on the earth. The artist will be present to speak about his work.
