This public art exhibition features 17 sculptural works, 16 artists, and 15 sites that celebrate the spirit and beauty of the Rockaways. The featured sculpture lining the seaside, range from the intimate to the monumental.
Inspired by the allure of Rockaway's coastline Herb Rosenberg's A Monument to Hope, Dan Bergman's Bright Moment, Anne Stanner's Rockaway Wave and Allan Cyprys’ two sculptures Sunset on the Rock #1 and Sunset on the Rock #3 reveal the artists’ interpretations of the elements and effects of nature.
Works by artists Stan Squirewell, Unity, and Febrications, No Doubt, showcase cultural icons that have been used to empower and connect people for generations.
The Last Mermaid by Christina Jorge, Heart @ Rockaway by Bibiana Huang Matheis, Rock Relics by Esther A. Grillo, and Sprout by Sui Park, use recycled materials to highlight environmental impact issues, important not only to Rockaway, but to planet Earth.
The viewer will find a variety of real and imagined marine life featured in the sculpture of Carl Rattner's Sea Creature, Chuck von Schmidt's WEAR R U GONG LES CARGO?, Siena Gillann Porta's ASIETY, (originating from oneself), and collaborating artists Carmen Frank and Laura Frank's Life in the Rockaways.
