"Battery Park City and the Authority are not just about the buildings – it’s about the character of the community that has developed over time. Public space has had a new renaissance in New York City, but here in Battery Park City is where it started."

Public art is back! After a stellar first season detailing the stories and personalities behind eight pieces in Battery Park City’s permanent collection, Public Art on Video: Season 2 presents a new look at the following works (click titles to view):

Sunrise, Sunset (Revolution), by Autumn Ewalt and Dharmesh Patel

BPCA manages a world-renowned 20th and 21st century collection of large-scale sculptures and environmental installations integrated with its 92-acre, residential lower Manhattan neighborhood’s parks and plazas. With curatorial and maintenance responsibilities for both permanent and temporary art installations, artists have been commissioned since the 1980’s through competitive selection processes and with advisement from curators and art experts of diverse backgrounds and specializations.

Inspired by informal conversations with the artists, and by the visitors who regularly engage with this world-famous art in our parks, the “Public Art on Video” series explores public art in Battery Park City’s urban landscape and the impact of experiencing art without walls.
