VALDES SCULPTURES MOVE FORWARD

Written by admin on . Posted in News West Side Spirit, Notes From the Neighborhood west side spirit.


A proposed installation of bronze sculptures along the Broadway Malls got one step closer to final approval after Community Board 7’s Parks and Preservation Committee voted 7-0 in favor of approving the project at its March 11 meeting. The full board is now scheduled to consider the proposal at its April 6 meeting.

If approved, 16 sculptures by Spanish artist Manolo Valdes would be installed at various points along the malls, between Columbus Circle and West 166th Street. The sculptures would officially be unveiled May 20 and remain on display until January 2011. Eleven of the 16 sculptures would be installed within the boundaries of Community Board 7: five in Columbus Circle, one at West 63rd Street, three at West 72nd Street, one at West 96th Street and another at West 103rd Street.

The Valdes exhibition would be presented in conjunction with the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Broadway Malls Association and the Marlborough Galleries.
