Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
Create a lantern from everyday materials and explore aspects of illumination with translucency, opacity, and cut-outs. Presented in conjunction with artist Rafael Domenech’s sculpture and bookmaking project at Socrates, ‘Las Palabras son Muros [Pavilion for Astoria]‘, this workshop further develops the artist’s ideas for creative re-use as a strategy for urban-living. The workshop is part of the Halloween Harvest Festival at Socrates, which offers a variety of family-friendly activities and performances.

Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
