Public Art at Lincoln Center
The “Melt to Earth” installation, consisting of fourteen aluminum sculptures by Aaron Curry was commissioned by Lincoln Center. The arrangement is meant to orbit the Revson Fountain, and transform the space into a sculptural theater-in-the-round.
These brightly colored sculptures range from 4” to 19’ and weigh up to 1.2 tons.
Aaron Curry is an LA based artist originally from San Antonio. He started out as a painter, and then moved on to sculpture, where he gained notoriety.
This project is his largest outdoor installation to date, and is part of an initiative for free public art at Lincoln Center. It will remain on display until January 6th.
