Join NYC Parks and artist Fitzhugh Karol for the opening of his public artwork Eyes in Faber Park. Eyes' intersecting steel shapes are derived from the simple silhouettes of hillsides and stairs, and will frame the park’s historic Village Hall. The integrated play feature will provide a chance to engage with the work in a way that most sculptures do not allow, appealing to the community in a fundamental way.
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.
