Crayson Cox: Half Story Mountain
Half Story Mountain
Brooklyn Bridge Park is pleased to welcome a minimalist sculpture by New York-based artist Grayson Cox. Supported by Two Trees Management, “Half Story Mountain” is is a 6-foot tall fiberglass sculpture meant to be a modernist Corbusier lounge chair silhouette embedded into a sculpted mountain form. The concept behind the piece is that the sculpture would act as a structure for a single reclining visitor, who would then become part of the view while “relaxing” for other on-lookers. “Half Story Mountain" will remain on view through next summer on the lawn at Empire Fulton Ferry.
Michael Clyde Johnson: Untitled Benches, Tables (Cube for Children), 2013
Inspired by ideas relating to mid-twentieth century playground design, this artwork invites interaction – to be touched, to be walked under, around and through. Integrated within the social and urban environment in which it is installed, it is an innately social artwork meant for play, both physical and imaginative.
