Art Installation Coming to Cadman Plaza Park


This weekend a public art installation by Leonard Ursachi will be put into Cadman Plaza Park. The piece, which is called “The Well,” is a sculpture with a wellhead, lever, and bucket that’s meant to be suggestive of a traditional rural well. According to the Parks Department, “For the wellhead, Ursachi cast blocks in transparent, water-blue acrylic with embedded crushed, empty plastic water bottles. He created the mold for the blocks from an antique cobblestone salvaged from a Brooklyn street when it was being torn up. The bottom surface of the wellhead is mirrored and like a traditional well, viewers will see their own reflections when they peer into the opening. Ursachi made the wellhead’s base, bucket, and lever from wood he salvaged from the East River, a block from his DUMBO studio.” The sculpture will be on view from October 29th through April 30th, 2012.
