Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
Over the weekend, visitors can view EAF15, the park's 15th Annual Emerging Artist Exhibition, featuring fifteen promising artists who were selected from a highly competitive applicant pool of 350+ submissions. The EAF Exhibition is a cornerstone of Socrates Sculpture Park's visual arts programming and is widely acclaimed for the ambition, breadth, and innovation of the public works on view. It has become an annual survey of the compelling and diverse state of sculpture today.
