m2m - MODEL TO MONUMENT
M2M is a five-year partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the Arts Students League of New York.
Each year, an international team of seven artists, selected among a group of nominated candidates, work together to learn, think, imagine, model, build and install individual works in Riverside Park South, Manhattan, and a collaborative work, in Van Cortlandt Park, Bronx.
This ninth month program, lead by Greg Wyatt, League instructor and sculptor-in-residence at St. John the Divine, trains artists to produce work for public spaces, bringing contemporary sculptures to hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers and visitors.
