Join Public Art Fund as we celebrate Kitchen Trees, the first public commission by New York-based artist B. Wurtz. This installation of large, whimsical arboreal-like sculptures will be composed of found, durable kitchen items such as colanders, pots, and pans that will form “trunks” and cascading “branches” with vibrant hanging plastic fruits and vegetables. Each rising 15 to 18 feet high and spanning 10 to 12 feet in diameter, the works in Kitchen Trees play with a new scale, responding directly to City Hall Park’s forms and functions. The works will be sited around the historic central Victorian fountain, adding a temporary and contemporary new splash for parkgoers.
