A Centennial Commemoration of World War I Memorials in NYC Parks
A century after US entry into World War I, the exhibit “Over Here” features 39 of the 102 World War Memorials in New York City’s Parks. Through the use of 94 vintage and contemporary photographs, as well as original renderings, objects, and memorabilia the show conveys the losses that communities throughout the city experienced and the artistic response. The exhibit also references how parks were used for the war effort. Highlights include images of sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, an original rendering of the Father Duffy monument in Times Square, the bronze maquette for the Woodside Doughboy, and the Highbridge Doughboy sculpture--slated for restoration.
