Valentine’s Day honors NYC Immigrants

 

Each year Times Square Arts features an art installation for Valentine’s Day.  This years piece honors NYC immigrants and is titled, We Were Strangers Once Too created by the Office of Creative Research.  

The sculpture consists of 33 red and pink metal poles representing data derived from a 2015 American Census Survey.  They are “inscribed and hued to represent the national origins and shifting populations of foreign-born NYC residents.  When viewed from a certain vantage point, these poles take the form of a heart.

The sculpture will be on display for a month beginning Feb. 7th at Times Square’s Father Duffy Square.
