THE WATER TOWERS OF NEW YORK # 3

I wouldn't normally post another set for a series so quickly and I'm kind of not as this isn't the genuine article, but this is awesome. I'm also majorly peeved that these weren't installed in January when I spent a bunch of time in Madison Square Park. At least with the internet I get to see them and now blog them...
New York—Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Mad. Sq. Art announces a new sculptural installation for late winter 2014: This Land Is Your Land by Brooklyn-based Chilean artist Iv├ín Navarro. The site-specific installation presents three water towers inside of which neon reflections repeat infinitely. The sculptures merge a staple of the New York skyline with the street-level landscape of the Park. The artist takes the exhibition’s title from the beloved 1940 Woody Guthrie folk song, which is both an American anthem and a vocal pull to the freedoms offered in this country for an immigrant population. The towers are elevated to a height above visitors’ heads, allowing them to walk underneath and look up into each sculpture to view the content within. The exhibition is on view daily from February 20 – April 13, 2014 in Madison Square Park.
