For the website of the Condé Nast Traveler, I put together a slideshow of the free, public art on view this summer in NYC.
Artist: Orly Genger
Location: Madison Square Park, Madison Ave at 23rd St
On view until: September 8
Undulating swirls of primary colors envelop the trees of Madison Square Park, courtesy of local artist Orly Genger and Madison Square Park Conservancy's Mad. Sq. Art program. Genger used 1.4 million feet of knotted rope for the project, some of it collected by lobster fishermen along the East Coast for reuse. When the installation has finished its run in Madison Square Park in early September, it will be shipped off and reassembled at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Massachusetts.
