Create collaborative clay sculptures with artist Yvonne Shortt for Pavilion Landing, a public art installation that will be installed in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in July 2019. No experience necessary.
RSVP on Eventbrite.
Yvonne Shortt’s Pavilion Landing tells the story of a group of intergalactic children whose spaceship has landed in the park after a long journey seeking a ray of hope generated by the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. Shortt will spend several days in the park working collaboratively with park visitors to build four 16”-tall sculptures of children out of clay. She will then make molds from the clay forms, which will be used to cast sixteen concrete sculptures placed at David Dinkins Circle. Their spacecraft, inspired by the Tent of Tomorrow’s iconic suspension roof, will be fabricated in concrete and aluminum with a clear plastic top that enables visitors to see the ship’s control center with several children at the helm. The exhibition will be on view at David Dinkins Circle from July 2019 – June 2020.
Located on the lawn alongside David Dinkins Circle. 7 train to Mets-Willets Point.
