Public Art Opening Reception: Picnic by Tamara Johnson
Sunday, June 24, 2018
2:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.
This sculpture was made specifically for Maria Hernandez Park and the surrounding Bushwick community. The familiar picnic scene symbolizes the gathering, relaxing, and sharing we experience with friends and family. This hand-cast concrete picnic serves as a tribute to those symbols, turning a temporary happening into a static monument for participation and contemplation. Please join the artist for a community picnic to celebrate this new installation, which will be on view through March 20, 2019 near the park entrance at Knickerbocker Avenue and Suydam Street.
