A tulle of art: Madison Square Park gets clouds and waterfalls of fabric

Last Wednesday workers were putting the finishing touches on the latest art installation in Madison Square Park.

Ana María Hernando’s “To Let the Sky Know / Dejar que el cielo sepa” is described as a sculpture of an abundance of tulle. The colorful fabrics are intended to inspire images of clouds and waterfalls.

    What happens to the fabric after?
    Is is re-used?
    Or just thrown away?

    Hoping NYC considers sustainability etc in art

      It’s an art piece…. Why would it be thrown away? I imagine it will be saved and even able to be shown at other places
