Mad. Sq. Art

Public art has the ability to enrich, to fascinate, and to astonish. Since 2004, the Mad. Sq. Art Program has been partnering with acclaimed, visionary artists to realize outdoor work on a monumental scale, work that complements and enhances the environment. These projects are free to the public and have made Madison Square Park a world-renowned cultural destination.
