War, Conflict and the Human Spirit Will Be on Display at This Governors Island Sculpture Show

In keeping with today’s difficult geopolitical climate, a new sculpture exhibit focusing on war and conflict will open on Governors Island on April 30.

The exhibition, called, “In Defense of the Human Spirit,” is presented by the West Harlem Art Fund and Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds. Highlighting the island’s history as a fortress protecting the city from invasion, the exhibit will convey movement, with “a twisting and bending of the strongest of materials, inward and out, stretching towards and facing a city that is continually evolving.” It features work from Gilbert Boro, Domenico Belli And Joe Gitterman, with visual energy that embraces continual change.

The exhibit will be curated by Savona Bailey-McClain of the West Harlem Art Fund and Christina Goldberg of Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, and located in Nolan Park on the island’s northeast side. It opens April 30 through October 31.
