Mad. Sq. Art

Public art has the ability to inspire, provoke and challenge people. Since 2004, our program of commissioned public sculpture has worked with distinguished artists to realize outdoor work that complements and enhances the environment. These projects are free to the public and have made Madison Square Park a renowned cultural destination.
