The sculptures will be placed in four key sites throughout the Park, chosen to maximize visitor access. The grassy triangle entrance facing Grand Army Plaza will be home to Dancer a 17-foot tall sculpture which spirals and soars upwards; Zerques, one of the smaller sculptures standing six and half feet tall will be placed on the lawn in front of the historic Litchfield Villa on 5th Street;Skipper, rising 13 feet, and also constructed with curved I-beams will greet visitors entering the Park from Bartel-Pritchard Square; and Valentine II, named for its elegant heart shaped form, will be placed on the Peninsula in front of the Lake.
“Parks is so pleased to partner with the Prospect Park Alliance and the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery on this exciting new public art exhibition in Prospect Park,” said NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP. “As a Brooklyn resident, I look forward to seeing Carole Eisner’s work displayed at the different locations around this beautiful park. Her sculptures are magnificent and eye-catching, and are sure to grab the attention of Prospect Park’s countless visitors. Art in the parks has a great impact on people of all ages, is integral to the park experience, and nourishes the soul.”
