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.

Art is the free, contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy. Since 2004, Mad. Sq.
