New York-based artist Maren Hassinger returns to this waterfront park with stunning Manhattan views with a series of new steel sculptures. Examining the complications of human interrelation and affinity, identity and collectiveness, through abstraction in the outdoors, these steel silhouettes take forms of various iconic vessels drawing types not only from her current practice, but from the ancient Western world, non-Western cultures, and various Craft traditions. Amplified to larger than human height, the public is invited to walk around and among them, experiencing new perspectives through the skeletal frame.

Excellent restaurants within easy walking distance include Château le WoofBel Aire DinerArepas GrillAstoria Provisions, and Flor de Azalea Cafe.
