Marking Socrates Sculpture Park’s 30th anniversary this year, the institution presents Landmark, a series of artist commissions and projects that transforms the land both physically and symbolically. Once an industrial landfill and illegal dumping ground, Socrates has transformed itself into New York City’s preeminent sculpture park and social space for public art, community engagement and urban discovery. Landmark directly addresses the idea of place as intimately tied to social and ecological structures, to maintenance and stewardship, and to evolution over time.

Landmark features eight different artist projects including a newly commissioned major earthwork by Meg Webster. Additional artists in the exhibition include Abigail DeVille, Brendan Fernandes, Cary Leibowitz, Jessica Segall, Casey Tang, the curatorial collective ARTPORT_making waves, and a Broadway Billboard by Hank Willis Thomas. Since its inception in 1986, Socrates and the surrounding area of Queens, New York has rapidly changed. Whether by engaging directly with the land or commenting on the neighborhood’s cultural and economic shifts, each artwork in Landmark reflects historic transformations in the making.

Two of the Gelflings have survived: Jen was raised by the all-knowing Mystics, while Kira grew up amongst the swamp-dwelling Podlings.

Marking Socrates Sculpture Park’s 30th anniversary this year, the institution presents Landmark, a series of artist commissions and projects that transforms the land both physically and symbolically. Once an industrial landfill and illegal dumping ground, Socrates has transformed itself into New York City’s preeminent sculpture park and social space for public art, community engagement and urban discovery. Landmark directly addresses the idea of place as intimately tied to social and ecological structures, to maintenance and stewardship, and to evolution over time.

Landmark features eight different artist projects including a newly commissioned major earthwork by Meg Webster. Additional artists in the exhibition include Abigail DeVille, Brendan Fernandes, Cary Leibowitz, Jessica Segall, Casey Tang, the curatorial collective ARTPORT_making waves, and a Broadway Billboard by Hank Willis Thomas. Since its inception in 1986, Socrates and the surrounding area of Queens, New York has rapidly changed. Whether by engaging directly with the land or commenting on the neighborhood’s cultural and economic shifts, each artwork in Landmark reflects historic transformations in the making.

Please join us for the closing reception of the Faces of Cuba exhibiton. This is the final chance to see this fabulous show. This photo exhibit is the result of a "people to people" exchange in which the artist participated last October.

It is not intended to be a travelogue or to express his political opinion. The various images convey his impressions of Cuba and the Cuban people.

The recent presidential visit and talk of lifting the embargo lend interesting context. The artist and group visited Havana, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad. Music and art were everywhere and the crumbling Spanish architecture made for many great images.

This season, the Public Theater's Mobile Unit presents a new, world-class production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to audiences and community venues across New York City. Olivier Award winner Chukwudi Iwuji (The Histories, King Lear at The Public) plays the anguished prince of Denmark who is confronted at every turn with a poisonous power structure that's robbed him of his father, and forever darkened his understanding of the world. Inspired by The Mobile Unit’s unique approach to engaging diverse communities with the arts, Patricia McGregor (Hurt Village, brownsville song (b-side for tray) at Lincoln Center) directs this bold take on Shakespeare's immortal tale about family, deceit and the explosive consequences of unchecked corruption.

Join NYC Parks, Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, the Fort Tryon Park Trust, and Community Board 12 members for a design presentation on Javits Playground.

NYC Park's landscape architects will present their proposed design for the Javits Playground renovation and secure public feedback on the design.

This is a public meeting and all are encouraged to attend. This will be a key opportunity for public comment about this project.

City Councilman Rodriguez has provided $1.5 million for the project, Manhattan Borough President Brewer has allocated $600,000, and the Fort Tryon Park Trust has provided $350,000 in private donations from local and regional supporters. The funding will provide the total projected capital costs of $2.45 million for a Phase 1 project at Javits Playground. NYC Parks has committed to restoring the natural areas of the playground with in-house resources, so the full area west of Fort Washington Avenue can be revitalized.

This season, the Public Theater's Mobile Unit presents a new, world-class production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to audiences and community venues across New York City. Olivier Award winner Chukwudi Iwuji (The Histories, King Lear at The Public) plays the anguished prince of Denmark who is confronted at every turn with a poisonous power structure that's robbed him of his father, and forever darkened his understanding of the world. Inspired by The Mobile Unit’s unique approach to engaging diverse communities with the arts, Patricia McGregor (Hurt Village, brownsville song (b-side for tray) at Lincoln Center) directs this bold take on Shakespeare's immortal tale about family, deceit and the explosive consequences of unchecked corruption.

This season, the Public Theater's Mobile Unit presents a new, world-class production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to audiences and community venues across New York City. Olivier Award winner Chukwudi Iwuji (The Histories, King Lear at The Public) plays the anguished prince of Denmark who is confronted at every turn with a poisonous power structure that's robbed him of his father, and forever darkened his understanding of the world. Inspired by The Mobile Unit’s unique approach to engaging diverse communities with the arts, Patricia McGregor (Hurt Village, brownsville song (b-side for tray) at Lincoln Center) directs this bold take on Shakespeare's immortal tale about family, deceit and the explosive consequences of unchecked corruption.

Space is limited. Please RSVP by email to Sarah.Bishow@parks.nyc.gov to reserve your seat.
