This event has ended.

Madison Square Park Conservancy presents Leonardo Drew’s project City in the Grass. The work, commissioned by Madison Square Park Conservancy, constitutes Drew’s first public art project and invites viewers to engage with a topographical view of an abstract cityscape atop a rolling, patterned panorama. Building on the artist’s signature techniques of assemblage and additive collage, the installation extends over 100 feet long. A recent development in Drew’s work is the richly textured, colorful surface.

City in the Grass is organized by Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Deputy Director and Martin Friedman Senior Curator of Mad. Sq. Art; Tom Reidy, Senior Project Manager; Julia Friedman, Senior Curatorial Manager; and Tessa Ferreyros, Curatorial Manager.
