Art In The Park!

One of the things that I love about @madsqparknyc, besides its proximity to where I live, work, and the many days spent when my daughter was a baby and a toddler, is the interesting art installations they curate throughout the year.

The latest one is " breathe, air, life" by @Shahzia.Sikander and will be displayed within the park until May 31st. The sculpture is of a large-scale female figure called Witness, complimenting another sculpture atop the Courthouse on 25th and Madison called NOW.

Witness is dressed in a steel hoop-skirt with mosaic detail spelling the word "havah." The horns on her head symbolize strength. She's also wearing a lace collar, as worn by the great RBG. It seeks to portray the female figure as the renderer of justice as depicted in different cultures throughout history.

It's really a breathtaking piece of art, which apparently also has a video animation and an augmented reality component if you have Snapchat. Since I don't, I didn't get to experience that, but the sculpture alone was enough to make me stop and admire it at length.

Check it out if you're in the area at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway at 23rd Street in New York City   — it's definitely worth a stop!
