We each have a first memory, a special moment or countless stories that come together to define our connection to Prospect Park. This Earth Day, Prospect Park Alliance is partnering with portrait photographer and print artist, Virginia L. S. Freire, to photograph the faces and record the stories of the community members–friends, families and even canines–that make up the vibrant landscape of Prospect Park. These images and testaments will be on display as part of an exhibit this summer at Lefferts Historic House celebrating the Faces and Stories of Prospect Park. Photos session will take approximately 3-5 minutes and will be only on a first-come, first-served basis.

Prospect Park Alliance and NYC Parks presents a public sculpture exhibition by artist Fitzhugh Karol through the NYC Parks Art in the Parks program. Two sculptures of colorful intersecting steel shapes reference familiar silhouettes of stairs and hillsides. Their abstract and playful shapes invite interaction and are a reminder of man’s imprint on the landscape. The two sculptures, titled “Searches” and “Reaches,” will be on display through Fall 2018.

About the Artist:
Fitzhugh Baylies Karol is a Brooklyn-based sculptor and designer interested in the integration of sculpture within landscape and architecture. Fitzhugh’s large outdoor sculptures and public works were be exhibited in three New York City parks in 2017.
