Lawns Open    Lawns Closed
Madison Square Park Conservancy is responsible for the maintenance of the park’s lawns, which includes closing the lawns each year from October through May for reseeding. With the heightened need for public space, the Conservancy has kept the lawns open throughout the pandemic. For the month of April, all lawns will be closed to reestablish the grass in time for summer.

Sol LeWitt creates two major concrete-block works, confirming his role as an influential and innovative leader in the Minimal and Conceptual art movements. Circle with Towers is a three-foot high, twenty-five feet in diameter concrete-block ring that is punctuated by eight fourteen-foot-high towers at equal intervals. Also in concrete block, Curved Wall with Towers, is a sinuous eighty-five foot long unfurling form closely related to Circle with Towers. Curved Wall has seventeen fourteen-foot-high towers placed at equal intervals. The face of the concrete block is sandblasted and bleached to the artist’s specifications. The two pieces demonstrate LeWitt’s career-long fascination with the cube and his more recent exploration of the potential of concrete block in art. LeWitt is known for creating works that appear deceptively simple with a goal of reducing art to a foundational premise. He is noted for a range of media including wall drawings, printmaking, photography, painting, installation and artist’s books. LeWitt prefers the word “structures” to “sculptures.”  The works on view in the park are built by the Rad & D’Aprile Corporation and workers from Allied Bricklayers & Craftworkers Union Local #1 under the supervision of principal assistant Jeremy Ziemann.
