COUNTDOWN TO NYE
On view in the center of Times Square’s most iconic plaza, Duffy Square, Roots is a sculptural installation of seven American Sweetgum trees, painted and presented with the root systems intact and upside down to a surreal and dystopic effect. Sweetgum trees, indigenous to the eastern United States and much more populous throughout the region that eventually became Times Square, are known for their impressive root systems that require vast open spaces to grow.
Roots is part of 3-part public art project The American Manifest by Charles Gaines, presented by Creative Time, Governors Island, and Times Square Arts.
