When “Prismatic Park” was on view in Madison Square Park in 2017, artist Josiah McElheny conceived a community of culture by inviting musicians, poets and dancers to rehearse, workshop and perform on, around, under and next to his blue glass sound wall, red and yellow glass poetry pavilion and green glass dance floor. MSPC partnered with #dancespaceproject @poets_house and @blankforms_ to realize this important work. Through McElheny’s vision and aegis, the project is now installed permanently in Skive, Denmark at Krabbesholm Højskole, a residential school for arts, architecture and design with an international student body. #MadSqPark #MadSqArt

'Eucomis bicolor' also known as the Pineapple lily is one of our strange late blooming perennials from South Africa. This exotic bulb may look like a tropical fruit, but is actually more closely related to Asparagus. #MadSqPark #MadSqHort #florafriday

#TBT to last week when we celebrated #NationalPublicGardensWeek with our Mad. Sq. Hort greenhouse in the Park. Madison Square Park is proud to be an American Public Garden. In this concrete jungle, our garden is not only a beautiful space, but a backyard to our community - accommodating those in search of respite from the urban chaos that surrounds us. We selectively curate our plants and programs with the intention of creating a space that inspires reflection and creativity during all seasons. . . . . . #MadSqHort #MadSqPark #PublicGarden #Horticulture #UrbanPark #NYC
