Fund for Park Avenue will unveil two public art exhibitions along the Park Avenue median. Traces in Order to Remember by artist Jorge Otero-Pailos were originally placed at the former U.S. Embassy in Oslo ~ a Saarinen-designed landmark. The sculpture pieces have been relocated and will be on view mid-March, 2024, running concurrently with Betsabeé Romero: Traces in Order to Remember along the Park Avenue median.
Each piece is made from the fence that once surrounded the building. These sculptures will be placed along Park Avenue in dialogue with mid-century modernist landmarks, International institutions and the Park Avenue Armory.
