Midtown’s Public Art
Public Art has become a very integral part of the city’s environment – besides permanent public sculptures like Augustus Saint Gaudens’ General Sherman, there are many exciting temporary sculpture projects, like those on Doris Freedman Plaza, dedicated to the founder of the Public Art Fund, and others along Park Avenue. Midtown Manhattan also has many building lobbies with works by leading artists, vest pocket parks, one of which has a piece of the Berlin Wall, and some buildings, such as Lever House and the Seagrams Building have wonderful special exhibitions throughout the year. On this walk with art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo, we will explore a great variety of public art and discuss its role in the city, its historical relevance and its potential to inspire. Cost: $20 / $15 Members.
