Seward Johnson In New York Selections from the RestrospectiveGarment District Plazas Broadway, Between 41st Street & 36th Street
For almost 50 years, Seward Johnson has been paying homage to American society through his startlingly realistic bronze sculptures. Now, a number of these timeless figures will be spending their summer in the Garment District as part of our "Summer Arts on the Plazas" program.
The installation, Seward Johnson In New York, features eighteen of the artist's sculptures, selected from three different collections. Passersby will do double takes when they see the life-like pieces of Celebrating the Familiar. They'll marvel at the three dimensional representations of famous impressionist paintings of Beyond The Frame. And they'll gawk at and pose with the familiar figures of Icons Revisted, featuring Marilyn Monroe and Abraham Lincoln.
