Orly Genger’s Red, Yellow and Blue

Red, Yellow and Blue

With spring blossoms out in full force and Madison Square Eats in full swing, Madison Square Park is full of great things right now, but I think our favorite thing might be the park’s newest public art installation just completed last week.

Orly Genger’s Red, Yellow and Blue uses hand-knotted nautical rope (painted in primary colors) to create huge canyons of color throughout the park. The three separate structures are made from 1.4 million feet of rope, weighing more than 100,000 pounds. (In fact, the total length of rope used is more than 20 times the length of the entire island of Manhattan.)

The work transforms an already beautiful landscape into something entirely unique and gives visitors new nooks and crannies to enjoy.

Orly Genger’s Red, Yellow and Blue is on view until Sept. 8.
