Sol LeWitt Mini Outdoor Sculpture Retrospective In City Hall Park

In recent years the city and the various private conservancy groups have put together temporary sculpture and other public art installations in many of New York's private parks--creating often fascinating interactions among a larger group of people who might never go into a museum.

This mini retrospective of Sol Lewitt sculpture is in City Hall Park. The final shots are of the more typical "art world", crowd that was there for the opening where mayor Bloomberg spoke, which I didn't stick around for.

While open space in Manhattan is at an extreme premium, one of the great things is that a good deal of it is available for parks. In Pittsburgh, this would almost certainly be a parking lot.
