in New York
Selections from the Restrospective
JUNE 22, 2015 — SEPT. 15, 2015
Garment 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. In the Summer of 2015 a number of these timeless figures spent their summer in the Garment District as part of our 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.
