Join NYC Parks and La Isla Bonita Festival to celebrate the opening of Lina Montoya's public artwork Mariposas Lamps. Inspired by Gabriel García Márquez’s Cien Años de Soledad, Montoya’s illuminated sculptures will redefine the monarch butterfly as an icon of migration and freedom. This work will be part of the series La Isla Bonita, a beautification project that seeks to transform public spaces through public art and community engagement.

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.
