A plinth appears on a median outside of Asia Society Museum. On it is a sculpture composed of two casts: on top an inverted bronze-colored eleventh-century male figure from Cambodia, balanced atop a light beige cast of a second-century Roman figure of Venus Genetrix. Neither figure has a head.

The Park Avenue Malls at East 70th Street

Relying solely on contributions from the community, The Fund for Park Avenue has been responsible for planting, lighting, and maintaining the trees and flowers on the Park Avenue Malls since 1980. The Fund also works closely with NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program to present a variety of temporary sculpture exhibitions on the Park Avenue Malls. For more than fifty years, the Art in the Parks program has brought contemporary public artworks to parks throughout the five boroughs, making New York City one of the world’s largest open-air galleries.

The Park Avenue Malls at East 70th Street are always open.
