"My Neighbor's Garden" by Sheila Pepe

In "My Neighbor’s Garden," Sheila Pepe's first outdoor exhibition, Pepe will drape vibrant and optimistic web-like structures across the walkways, revitalizing Madison Square Park’s nineteenth-century design. The webs will be made out of domestic and industrial materials including string, shoelaces, outsize sustainable rubber bands, and more. Parkgoers will gaze up at the playful canopies as they stroll through the park.
