El Dorado (meaning “The Golden” in English) is an art installation that pays tribute to the 49% of New Yorker households that speak a language other than English. This installation consists of 100 colored “guagua (infant)” sculptures, 49 of them painted gold to reflect the 49% New Yorkers, presented as a contemporary archeological site. It also pays tribute to Lewis H. Latimer’s contribution to electrical light by adding a glowing-in-the-dark element in the guaguas.

The installation will be on view till October 14, 2018.

This program and exhibition is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. It is part of NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program.

Who are the helpers in your neighborhood? What are their superpowers? Do they have any secret identities? In this workshop, we’ll create capes or masks that celebrate the heroes right here in our own neighborhoods – parents, teachers, nurses, crossing guards, sanitation workers, and more.

Each participant will create a colorful logo with letters or symbols that represent someone important in their daily life, attaching the pieces onto a fabric cape they can actually wear. Participants may also be able to hide their secret identity by creating a matching felt mask.
