About the Event
“What’s important to remember is that while barriers have been used to divide us, as humans we are all the same. Some are more privileged than others, but with that privilege comes a responsibility to do more.”
On October 12, Public Art Fund will unveil its 300+ site, 5-borough exhibition “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” by international artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei. A passionate response to the global refugee crisis and the political and social forces that seek to divide us from each other, the exhibition transforms the security fence into a powerful social and artistic symbol.
Join us on Wednesday October 11 from 5:30 to 6:30pm ?in ?Washington Square Park for a special public preview of the show with AI WEIWEI, actress OLIVIA WILDE, Director of the UNHCR Office in New York NINETTE KELLEY, Public Art Fund Director & Chief Curator NICHOLAS BAUME, and other passionate friends and supporters from our local and global community.
Rain or shine!
