Dionisio Cortes Ortega, Sitting Together - Joyce Kilmer Park, Bronx
Joyce Kilmer Park
Joyce Kilmer Park, Bronx
Inspired by the neighboring Bronx Supreme Courthouse, Sitting Together critiques the established proceedings of courtroom cases. The sculptures will place the plaintiff and defendant within modified witness stands to encourage empathy and understanding, and redefine how we think of conflict resolution. Color and seating direction in each sculpture address the severity of the conflicts.
