As part of the seasonal Madison Square Park art exhibits, this spring will feature a 40 foot tall structure by American artist Martin Puryear. Called Big Bling, the structure will be on exhibit in Madison Square Park all summer and fall/early winter from May 16, 2016 through January 8, 2017. It will be built of wood and wrapped in a thin chain link fence, with a gold leaf shackle at the top. This will be Martin Puryear’s largest sculpture/structure to date.
The sculpture is part of the Madison Square Conservancy’s groundbreaking Madison Square Art public art program. Each season you will find thought-provoking sculptures, structures, video and audio art throughout the park by the most prominent artists in the world including Antony Gormley, Orly Genger, Iván Navarro, Jim Campbell, Richard Deacon, Tadashi Kawamata, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, William Wegman, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Jaume Plensa, and Sol LeWitt.
