Deinstalling Erwin Redl’s Whiteout
Without a doubt, Erwin Redl’s Whiteout has been a success as scores of passersby and fans of Mad. Sq. Art have enjoyed the striking light exhibition over the course of the past four months. Whiteout has brought the Park to life and will be missed as we deinstall the hundreds of LED orbs starting today through the first week of April. We appreciate your patience as the work is deinstalled and apologize for any inconvenience caused by pathways that are temporarily closed for pedestrian safety.
Mad. Sq. Art is the contemporary art program of Madison Square Park Conservancy. Since 2004, Mad. Sq. Art has commissioned over thirty free and public exhibitions by internationally recognized artists.
