40-Foot-Tall "Big Bling" Outdoor Art Exhibition Arrives in Madison Square Park

Sculture artist Martin Puryear has created a 40-foo-tall wooden sculpture with a gold-leaf shackle in Madison Square Park. The sculpture, titled Big Bling, will be on display in the park until January 2017.

Madison Square Park Conservancy and American sculptor Martin Puryear today announced a major public sculpture, Big Bling, to be on view in Madison Square Park from May 16, 2016 through January 8, 2017. The temporary outdoor work, the thirty-third public art exhibition to be mounted by Mad. Sq. Art, the free contemporary art program of Madison Square Park Conservancy, will be a multi-tier wood structure wrapped in fine chain-link fence. A gold-leafed shackle will be anchored near the top of the structure. At forty feet high, Big Bling will achieve colossal scale and elicit a range of readings, stimulating diverse and profound interpretations of its meaning.
