Artist Arlene Shechets site-specific installation features a series of sculptures in porcelain, wood, steel, and cast iron installed around and within the emptied circular reflecting pool in the north of Madison Square Park. Intriguing forms include the outsized remnants of a lion’s head and paw; remains of a bird’s colossal feather displayed high on a pedestal as an ominous trophy; and tree-like sculptures and branches in cast iron. Visitors are encouraged to step into the reflecting pool to linger and reflect and use the seating for conversation..

* Treat yourself to frozen custard from the original Shake Shack or gelato from nearby Eataly.
