So back to meeting new neighbors…There’s also the River Gazers by Elizabeth Allison. Not as needy during their photo shoot. Very photogenic, wouldn’t you say?
Just so you know…The Art Students League of New York along with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation installed the sculptures along the walking path in June. The program called Model to Monument (M2M) involves seven students under master sculptor Greg Wyatt. (Wyatt, the sculptor-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John Divine* takes the artists through the entire process in making public art.) If you’re in the hood, I’m sure they’d all love to meet you!
*On a side note…If you haven’t been to the cathedral you are so missing out. Several of their annual events (Halloween, the Blessing of the Animals and the Blessing of the Bikes) are in my top ten “best of” during my two plus years here, so far!
