The park is my favorite place to be when the weather cooperates in New York City. I’ve always said, if it weren’t for the parks and Bergdorf Goodman, I couldn’t have survived living in Manhattan. The spacious, green havens have always saved my sanity when I’ve felt my senses were being attacked with just too much “stuff.” Though Central Park seems nothing short of a miracle when we consider it is man-made, we must not forget all the other amazing green spaces in the city. One such space that, sadly, tends to fall off my radar is City Hall Park. The extra bonus is, many of these sanctuaries have awesome public-art installations throughout the year.
City Hall Park is located at Broadway and Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan. The Public Art Fund has recently installed Image Objects in this fantastic space. Image Objects is a sculpture exhibition that responds to the current obsession with digital sculpture. More specifically, the artists in the show explore digital culture’s impact on image and object relationships. Each one utilized digital methods to create sculptural works for this show. In one little jaunt to the area, you can discover magnificent works by Hank Willis Thomas, Jon Rafman, Amanda Ross-Ho, Artie Vierkant, Lothar Hempel, Alice Channer, and Timur Si-Qin. A visit to Image Objects is a perfect destination for a romantic date, hanging with the kids, or just reconnecting your head on an oppressive day.
