Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Mad. Sq. Art. Presents Sculptor Martin Puryear’s

BIG BLING

May 16, 2016 – January 8, 2017

Madison Square Park, 23rd-26th Streets between Madison and Fifth Avenues

Mad. Sq. Art, the free, contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, presents a major public exhibition by renowned American sculptor Martin Puryear, Big Bling, to be on view in Madison Square Park from May 16, 2016 through January 8, 2017. The temporary outdoor work, the thirty-third public art exhibition to be mounted by Mad. Sq. Art, will be a multi-tier wood structure wrapped in fine chain-link fence. A gold-leafed shackle will be anchored near the top of the structure.

At forty feet high, Big Bling will achieve colossal scale and elicit a range of readings, stimulating diverse and profound interpretations of its meaning.

Martin Puryear (American, b. 1941) is an internationally renowned, award-winning sculptor and recipient of the 2016 Yaddo Artist Medal. Mad. Sq. Art is the free, contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy. Since 2004, Mad. Sq. Art has commissioned and presented thirty premier installations in Madison Square Park by acclaimed artists ranging in practice and media.
