HARLEM NY-Like a monument from an alternate universe, a new sculpture of a weary-looking, reclining Statue of Liberty is coming to Harlem, set to be installed in Morningside Park later this fall.
Plans for the sculpture, titled "Reclining Liberty," by Harlem-based artist Zaq Landsberg, were presented Wednesday evening at a Community Board 9 committee meeting. It has a tentative installation date of Nov. 22, and will remain in place until November 2021.t will be composed mostly of plaster resin and coated with oxidized copper paint to mimic the look of the real-life statue.
The $16,700 project is fully funded, with support coming from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, Friends of Morningside Park and the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.
