Color Field Sculpture - Shelley Parriott - Yonkers, New York, Waterfront Park

From installation to viewer participation at Hudson River Park, Yonkers, New York

Hudson Park, along the riverfront in Yonkers, NY, is a vibrant area.
Pedestrians enjoy walking, fishing … and interacting with sculpture.  Our site is on the riverfront close to the “Science Barge”, visible from “X20 Xaviars” restaurant and the sculpture by Boaz Vaadia.  The Hudson can be seen through the transparencies of Color Field Sculpture.
Thanks to the staff from the city of Yonkers, The Blue Door Artist Association, Luis Perelman, Director, for inviting us, art installer Todd Brannon, as well as Robert Naccarato for his help with the installation.   


Color Field Sculpture is seen to the north of Boaz Vaadia figures. 

Young visitor literally gets into the sculpture.

Color Field Sculpture - Shelley Parriott - Javits Center, NYC

The Javits Center is not seen specifically as an art venue.  But the lure of the city drew us in and we participated in the Contemporary Art Fair.  

Entering the Javits Center and installing colorful sheer components:

Children are always fully engaged…drawn in by welcoming colors.


New York City always surprises!  Participants often view Color Field Sculpture as meditative, subtle and "ethereal' … 
a place for calm introspection as illusory colors become transparent in changing light … But at The Javits Center in New York City edgy passersby were in a playful mood…..

An artist stopped in his tracks!

Andy Golub's colorful painted people, having been on the David Letterman in August, suddenly appeared at The Javits … out of the ordinary 
… how could they resist chromatic shapes?

Photographer Marisa Arvonio focused in on the painterly quality and patterns created by overlapping transparencies.

We met fine artists, artisans, and international viewers.
