This fall brings some new sculptures to Madison Square Park! Mel Kendrick’s Markers will be on display from September 17 – December 31, 2009.
Madison Square Art 2009:
Mad.Sq.Art is proud to present Markers, a series of five new monumental sculptures by Mel Kendrick. Known for a process-oriented approach to art making that emphasizes the practice of addition and subtraction, Kendrick’s Markers are cast in alternating layers of black and white concrete, resulting in bold striation that alludes to the layered stone found in Italian Gothic Cathedrals. Standing over ten feet tall, the commanding scale of these sculptures echoes the grandeur of their home on the Oval Lawn at the center of the historic Madison Square Park.
Mad.Sq.Art is the free, outdoor art gallery presented by the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
Major support for Mad.Sq.Art is provided by the Founding Partners Agnes Gund and Anonymous (2). Substantial support is provided by Toby Devan Lewis, the Henry Luce Foundation and Ronald A. Pizzuti. Major project support for Markers is provided by David Nolan Gallery, Jill and Peter Kraus, Gail Monaghan and Francis Williams. This project is supported in part with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
