Each summer, The Fund for Park Avenue commissions large-scale works by major artists for the medium running from 52nd to 65th Streets. While we wait for the next installation, George Rickey, which will celebrate the Park Avenue Sculpture Advisory Committee’s 20th anniversary this Fall, let us take a look back to the seven Santiago Calatrava pieces, commissioned for the summer of 2015.
