Public Art in the Bronx

By Steve Moyer | HUMANITIES, November/December 2009 | Volume 30, Number 6

Two images from Public Art in the Bronx, an NEH-supported website launched by the Lehman College Art Gallery (http://www.lehman.edu/vpadvance/artgallery/publicart/) that features an eclectic array of over one hundred works found in the borough’s public places. This painted steel sculpture by Michael Browne and Stuart Smith rests a hare’s breadth from the cross-country finish line at Van Cortlandt Park. Opposite, sound and sense are at play during recess for kids attending P.S. 23 in the Bronx, thanks to Bill and Mary Buchen’s ingenious installations that make physics fun.
