The Strange Cabinet in Prospect Park, and Other Artworks in the Park

Three new public art installations are on view in Prospect Park as part of “Art in the Parks: Celebrating 40 Years.” New York City Parks & recreation is commemorating the 40th anniversary of its public art program with 40 temporary art installations at parks, playgrounds and traffic triangles throughout the five boroughs.

On view at Prospect Park are works by artists Stefany Anne Golberg (thru Nov. 16), Steve Tobin (thru Jan. 5, 2008), and Arthur Simms (Thru March 15, 2008).

Anytime, Now. Somewhere, Here by Stefany Anne Golberg, a multimedia, site-specific work based on the diary of a New York immigrant named Henry. It consists of a walk-in “observation cabinet” on the peninsula in Prospect Park, with copies of excerpts from Henry’s diary that are distributed to viewers for free.
