Please join NYC Parks in celebrating the installation of Rebecca Manson's first public sculpture! Come Closer and the View Gets Wider will open at Tribeca Park on Monday, July 9 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Thousands of handmade, glazed porcelain parts join together in an eight-foot orb for artist Rebecca Manson’s public installation. Come Closer and the View Gets Wider is a sphere of tiny porcelain sculptures, each an intimate, bone-like shape, adhered and supported by an elaborate system of aluminum and epoxy. Comprised of innumerable parts which on their own may appear insignificant, the structure celebrates the idea that small things together amount to something impactful; a monument to collective consciousness.
This event is free and open to the public
