Description

From Hyperallergic
Anthony Goicolea’s LGBTQ Memorial in Hudson River Park consists of a circle of nine large boulders that evoke the image of an impromptu meeting space. Although these boulders look like conventional rocks, they are actually made of bronze in an effort to subvert the expectations of the artist’s materials — what you see is not necessarily what you get. Within eight of these boulders, Goicolea has inserted a strip of reflective glass that refracts various colors emanating from the rocks’ cores.
