A Lush " Clearing"

Marilyn K. Yee/ The New York Times

We have recently checked out the new art installation " A Clearing in the Streets" in Lower Manhattan by Julie Farris and Sarah Wayland- Smith who are active contributors of Balmori Associates. The ten sided structure provides a glimpse of an urban wilderness suspended in the cityscape and makes a successful sampling of meadow ( mix of native plants and grasses grown from seed on a raised bed) . The idea was to leave the plantings to grow wild, and they have!

Beginning images and interviews featured in Dwell, the Public Art Fund website, CoolHunting and Inhabitat. Our favorite image is an aerial shot from the New York Times showing the lush grass from above, as it is now. The exhibit is commissioned by the Public Art Fund and is on display until October. We recommend it.
