See “Windows into Freshkills Park” at NYPL Branches

Windows into Freshkills Park

Windows into Freshkills Park is now on display at two New York Public Library branches! The miniature museum is spread across Staten Island, with two interactive dioramas at the St. George branch and two at the Great Kills branch. The four boxes illustrate Freshkills Park’s environmental history, technologies, wildlife, and evolution as a new public space.

Slanted Studios & MTN GODS Selected To Design Public Installation about Freshkills Park

Slanted Studios & MTN GODS

Through a juried process, Slanted Studios & MTN GODS have been selected to develop a public installation that will engage New Yorkers with the evolving Freshkills Park project. Their modular exhibit will tell the story of the park through its history, ecology, design, technology and possibility.


NEST in the Winter: Time Lapse Video


Shortly after Winter Storm Jonas, artist Kirk Finkel recorded this time lapse video of his installation at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George. This interactive sculpture, called NEST, is designed to bring Freshkills Park wildlife to people in New York City and encourage visitors to see the park firsthand.


Farther Afield: Gazing Globes at Madison Square Park

Madison Square Park

If you haven’t yet visited Paula Hayes’ Gazing Globes at Madison Square Park, I highly recommend a trip to 25th street around dusk before the exhibition closes on April 19th. Hayes’ first public art exhibition in NYC comes alive as the sun starts to set over the city.


The Art of Recycling

The Freshkills team is always on the lookout for engaging initiatives that combine education, sustainability, and art – not to mention recycling. Recology, a waste management company based in San Francisco, supports a young artists program that combines all these topics in one exemplary project.
