Mad. Sq. Art is a free contemporary art program presented by the Madison Square Park Conservancy that brings newly-commissioned art to the landscape of the park each year. This year, they have introduced the Mad. Sq. Art app to enhance the experience and teach visitors more about the art, artists, and programming in general.
The app features in-depth info on the current installation by Brooklyn-based artist Orly Genger. Red, Yellow, and Blue is a project that took Genger two years to complete. Made out of 1.4 million feet of tri-colored, reclaimed lobster rope, the installation covers three of the lawns at Madison Square Park. The new Mad. Sq. Art app provides behind-the-scenes interviews with Genger and the Conservancy President Debbie Landau on the process of creating and installing the massive work, as well as a time-lapse video and other bonus materials.
Red, Yellow, and Blue is on view now through September 8, and the application is available for download via QR codes found on park signs or directly from http://madsqpark.toursphere.com.
