​SUNDAY: Sketch the Swimmers on Park Avenue


Event suggested by Shawne Cooper​

SUNDAY, not Saturday.  On SUNDAY join us to sketch swimmer sculptures on Park Avenue.  There are nine of them on display between East 39th St and 34th.  They’re located on the median in the center of the Avenue.

The swimwear-clad sculptures are a good sample of a lifetime’s work by New York-based artist Carole Feuerman.  She describes the hyper realistic sculptures as “Sea Idylls”.  Of course the sculptures are not about swimwear, nor about swimming.  The statue at E37 St  is called “Justice”.  It shows a woman in a bathing suit sitting on top of a chrome sphere that reflects the viewer, the street, the city and even the world​.​

Our meeting place 101 Park Avenue
