The Socrates Sculpture Park is celebrating 30 years of Public art and community leadership.
In a former abandoned 2-acre landfill lot sits a magical public garden that honors artistic expressions and the land we live in. The Socrates Sculpture Park is located a block from the Noguchi Museum at the crossing of Broadway and Vernon Boulevard in the neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. The public outdoor museum serves as a cultural hub where emerging and established artists can play and dream up ideas for the world to come admire.
”To be outdoors is an essential thing for living sculpture, and we have that here,”
Mark di Suvero– Sculptor & Founder
For the big celebratory presentation “Landmark” the Park enlisted artists Meg Webster, Abigail DeVille, Brendan Fernandes, Cary Leibowitz, Jessica Segall, Casey Tang, Hank Willis Thomas, and the curatorial collective ARTPORT_making waves.
