Madison Square Park’s 33rd public art exhibition goes on display this May and comes to the park courtesy of American sculptor Martin Puryear. Big Bling is a 40-foot, multi-tier structure composed of wood that is wrapped in a fine chain-link fence. It is topped off by a gold-leafed shackle and is the largest temporary outdoor structure the artist has ever created. Big Bling’s meaning can be interpreted in different ways, and thus it will serve as a catalyst for readings and conversations surrounding what it stands for.
