“Love Letters” Installation in Times Square

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
"Love Letters" is the winning sculpture of the 2021 Love in Times Square Design Competition. The artwork takes inspiration from the building facades of New York City, using plywood as a material of public engagement to mimic a scrolling storefront. The installation winds across Duffy Square in the heart of Times Square to create four integrated spaces—the soapbox, loveseat, chapel, and wishing well—in one folding surface, forming the shape of two interlocked hearts. It'll be up through March 10, and to celebrate its closing, dancer Marielis Garcia will share a special sunset dance performance entitled Encantó on March 5 and 6 at 5:45pm, incorporating "Love Letters" into her choreography set to original music in a costume inspired by the artwork.
