Adding to the whimsical animal creatures on Park Avenue in Murray Hills, conservationists and sculpture artists Gillie and Marc will unveil ‘Faces of the Wild’ on the Ruth Wittenberg Triangle in Greenwich Village on Friday, April 1st.
This four-month exhibit (through July 31, 2022) will feature nine, six-foot-tall sculptures, representing some of the most endangered animals in the world. Each sculpture will have a QR code that provides more information on the animals and an option to donate to World Wildlife Fund, Gillie and Marc’s charity partner.

Oh, how we love the sculptures of Gillie and Marc, who have been delighting and entertaining New Yorkers for years with their whimsical bronze wonders, and timely and thoughtful messages. Now, with King Nyani coming to Hudson Yards, we thought it a great time to look back in our archives for a few more Gillie and Marc creations.
To raise awareness and funds for the critically endangered gorilla species, public artists Gillie and Marc have created a massive sculpture of the animal that will be unveiled later this month in Hudson Yards’ Bella Abzug Park. Titled King Nyani, Swahili for gorilla, it’s the world’s largest bronze gorilla sculpture.
