Join NYC Parks for the opening of The Conversation Sculpture by Musa Hixson in Von King Park. Musa Hixson’s steel sculpture will include several stools enclosed within a flower-shaped frame, which will provide a space for intimate conversation in the public park. The sculpture’s horticultural form will reference the park’s mature landscape and new conservatory garden.
This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
