11 Outdoor Art Installations Not to Miss in NYC August 2016

8. Ascension on the Corner of 36th Street and Ninth Avenue

The corner of 36th Street and Ninth Avenue will become the permanent home to artist Jordan Baker-Caldwell‘s nine-foot tall sculpture entitled Ascension. The large tubular form, made of weathered steel, will be installed on August 9th in partnership with Hell’s Kitchen/Hudson Yards Alliance. Sitting at an odd angle, it is meant to challenge the viewer’s sense of spatial awareness, creating a quiet moment of contemplation amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Mr. Baker-Caldwell currently has a mixed-media sculpture entitled Golem on view in Marcus Garvey Park through August 31.
