Time Out says

This 4.5-acre city park on a former landfill hosts large-scale sculpture exhibits year-round. Not only does it always have incredible sculptures, its art is set to the backdrop of the East River and the Manhattan skyline. It’s open 365 days a year, offering music and dance performances, movie screenings, yoga and more. “Monuments Now,” its summer/fall exhibition featuring a trio of artists—Jeffrey Gibson, Paul Ramírez Jonas and Xaviera Simmons—presenting large-scale objects that take the premise literally.
