On June 2, celebrate the unveiling of 401 Park's large-scale outdoor installation Grouping of Works from Fountain by celebrated contemporary artist, Nicole Eisenman. The event will allow the community to view the work, participate in art activities for the whole family, and enjoy food and drink from local vendors.
Grouping of Works from Fountain
The original iteration of the art piece, Sketch for a Fountain, made its international debut in 2017 at Skulptur Projekte Münster. The installation features several figures of bathers, situated in various positions around a shallow pool of water. The initial installation included five figures made of both plaster and bronze, but the three figures in Grouping of Works from Fountain will all be made bronze. The piece will live permanently as a fixture of the newly renovated green space at 401 Park.

After viewing the art piece on the green space, attendees can make their way into the main lobby of 401 Park for an afternoon of activities and food.
