If you are heading off to a lunch break from the office, or arrive in the neighborhood early for a meeting at your NYC virtual office, make sure to check out the Vigilant Groundsman in Madison Square Park. (Tuesday – Saturday from 11am-2pm and 3-6pm)
“Mad. Sq. Art is proud to present Madison Square Trapezoids, with Performances by The Vigilant Groundsman, a video installation and performance art project by Bill Beirne. Beirne, in his role as The Vigilant Groundsman, turns the everyday acts of horticultural maintenance and wildlife documentation into aesthetic actions by performing absurdist variations of these daily routines. Known for incorporating surveillance video into his public performances, Beirne’s actions as The Vigilant Groundsman are recorded by surveillance cameras and transmitted live to the monitors in the Mad. Sq. Art video room.
The Vigilant Groundsman will be in the Park October 2 – 30, 2009 with performance hours on Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
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 Founding Partners Agnes Gund and Anonymous (2). Substantial support is provided by Toby Devan Lewis, the Henry Luce Foundation and Ronald A. Pizzuti. This project is supported in part with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.”
