In honor of Veteran’s Day, check out the newest art installation this evening in Union Square Park. The installation opened last Thursday at a special ceremony with the artist, Krzysztof Wodiczko. The work is called Abraham Lincoln: The War Veteran Projection. and features images of veterans telling their stories projected on the bronze commemorative statue of Abraham Lincoln. The piece was made possible with our partners at the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, More Art, and the Union Square Partnership. Delicious treats and hot cider were made available at the opening, thanks to the generous support of Whole Foods Union Square.
The piece is on view every evening from 6 PM – 10 PM until December 2nd. The Lincoln Statue is located on the 16th Street transverse of the Park – across from the playground entrance.
