Walk Around South Cove with Mary Miss
June 23, 6:00 pm
From 1985-86 Mary Miss was the lead on a ground-breaking collaborative design team with architects Susan Child and Stan Eckstut. Coinciding with the development of former landfill site Battery Park City, they created South Cove, one of the country’s most significant public artworks. Called ‘The most environmentally sensitive major sculptural enterprise that New York City has been offered’ by New York Magazine’s Kay Larson, its winding boardwalks, quay and jetty recontextualize the view of New York Harbor and reconnect residents with the water. Join Miss on a walking tour of South Cove to learn about her involvement 30 years ago, current thinking about the site and our relationship with water.
