From March 5–31, 2019, Times Square Arts and SPRING/BREAK Art Show present four outdoor sculptures that blur reality and fantasy with delight and warning on the Broadway Plazas in Times Square. All four works are presented as part of this year’s SPRING/BREAK Art Show in response to the theme FACT AND FICTION.

CTRL/Command
Noah Scalin, curated by Dawne Langford
Father Duffy Square

Riffing on the iconic New York City pedestrian traffic signals, Scalin’s outlandishly oversize sculpture replaces “WALK” and “DONT WALK” with a new message: “WAKE” and “DONT WAKE.” The work asks us to consider the commands and transactions we passively encounter throughout the day.

A New America
ICY and SOT, curated by Zahra Sherzad
Broadway Plaza at 42nd Street

A New America is an American flag made of steel bars and fencing material mounted on a pole. The materials contrast the hopeful symbol of the American dream by evoking the physical barriers immigrants face as they try to enter America, from border fencing to detention cells.

The Rapture
Michael Zelehoski, curated by Ché Morales
Broadway Plaza between 46th and 47th Streets

A salvaged backhoe is deconstructed and reassembled to invoke a fossilized dinosaur. The very technology used to build our civilization appears extinct, reclaimed by the earth and presented as the only testament to humanity’s brief time on this planet.

Eventual Artifact
Devra Freelander and Gracelee Lawrence
Broadway Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets

In a fantasy core sample of Times Square from the future, fluorescent faux-geological strata are peppered with 3D printed copper forms of imported fruits, hands, CDs, sneakers, Styrofoam cups, and other techno-capitalist artifacts.
