You may have seen postcards and advertising around the city for the Parks Department’s 30th Annual Wreath Interpretations show, featuring the artwork of our very own volunteer artist Sabu. Just because the holiday season is almost over doesn’t mean you have to miss this creative and fun exhibition! Wreath Interpretations is on display through January 10th.
The show highlights the many forms a wreath can take. The wreaths show off just some of the many ways that recyclable and previously-used materials can be re-imagined and refashioned. In addition to Sabu’s wreath made of ribbon, paper, and other materials from the MFTA warehouse, there are circles of almond shells, Chinese food containers, milk jugs, and all kinds of wheels.
It’s also a great chance to check out The Arsenal, one of New York City’s most interesting and historic buildings. Now the Parks Department’s headquarters, it was previously a functioning arsenal and the first home of the American Museum of Natural History, a longtime MFTA recipient and donor.
