We loved Zaq Landsberg’s Reclining Liberty in Morning Side Park, Harlem, and celebrated the monuments move to Liberty State Park. Now, she is packed and ready to return to New York for a brief stay in Red Hook!
Following Reclining Liberty…..here’s what we know. After a year on display in Liberty State Park, the 25-foot-long, 2,000 pound statue is moving indoors ~ into the Red Hook gallery space, Andrew Logan Projects located at 384 Van Brunt Street in Brooklyn for a short stay through June 24, 2023.
Leaning as if falling into the sea, artists Kevin Quiles Bonilla and Zaq Landsberg reimagined a garita from the historic fortresses of Old San Juan, hammered by hurricanes on the fifth anniversary year of Hurricane Maria.
We were on site at the East Harlem Art Park for the installation of For centuries, and still... (anticipated completion).
This year marks the 245th anniversary of the Battle of Fort Washington, a key event during the Revolutionary War.

NYC Parks has unveiled “Tomb Effigy of Margaret Corbin” by artist Zaq Landsberg, the 2020 recipient of the Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award. The artwork will be displayed on the upper plaza of David Rockefeller Linden Terrace at Fort Tryon Park through June 12, 2022.
Artist Talk and Closing Reception on Thursday, June 9th from 6-8pm.
Sculpture artist Zaq Landsberg created and presented the illustrations for this piece during the last administration, prior to COVID-19 and our citywide shutdown. It was inspired by Buddhist imagery, and meant to depict our iconic American landmark, weary, reclining, and asking the question ~ “what stage of America are we in.” COVID-19 closed our city, and Reclining Lady lay waiting, like all of us, for better days.
