Ivan Navarro's Mad. Sq. Art Installation Now On View Through 4/20
by BWW News Desk - Apr 07, 2014

Madison Square Park Conservancy's Mad. Sq. Art presents a new sculptural installation for late winter 2014: This Land Is Your Land by Brooklyn-based Chilean artist Iva?n Navarro. The site-specific installation presents three water towers inside of which neon reflections repeat infinitely. The sculptures merge a staple of the New York skyline with the street-level landscape of the Park. The artist takes the exhibition's title from the beloved 1940 Woody Guthrie folk song, which is both an American anthem and a vocal pull to the freedoms offered in this country for an immigrant population. The towers are elevated to a height above visitors' heads, allowing them to walk underneath and look up into each sculpture to view the content within. Originally scheduled to close April 13 following its February 20 premiere earlier this year, the popular work will now remain on view daily through April 20 in Madison Square Park. (more...)
