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.

Public Art Symposium: Greening Public Art

Tree with Clocktower

For its sixth annual public art symposium, Madison Square Park Conservancy invites leading artists, environmentalists, journalists, and cultural leaders to explore how art today considers and addresses the urgent crises facing our environment, including climate change and concurrent issues of global migration, political turmoil, and food insecurity.

Public Art Symposium: Greening Public Art includes a keynote conversation with Maya Lin, Maria Rodale of the Rodale Institute, and Bill Ulfelder of The Nature Conservancy in New York. Moderated by Andrew Revkin, The Earth Institute at Columbia University. Featured speakers include the artist collective Dear Climate, artists Nicholas Galanin, Alison Janae Hamilton, Tavares Strachan, and Serpentine Galleries Curator Lucia Pietroiusti. Sarah Douglas, Executive Editor of ARTnews, will moderate the panel discussion.

Registration currently not open.
