ソクラテス彫刻公園Socrates Sculpture Park

クイーンズにあるソクラテス彫刻公園は、1986年まで主に不法廃棄処分に使われ、放置されたままの土地だった。この公園周辺の地域は、ほとんど知られることのない産業建築物や自動車整備工場、まれにアパートなどの建物もある都会の荒廃地である。Until 1986 Socrates Sculpture Park was an abandoned strip of land in Queens that was used mainly for dumping illegal waste. The area surrounding the park is urban wasteland with mostly anonymous looking industrial buildings, auto workshops with the occasional apartment building.

In 1986 a group of artists and local people from the community miraculously transformed the dump it into an exhibition venue for artists and as a park for local residents. Today it is exactly that and regularly hosts free outdoor events as well as having sculptures that are always on display .

It’s quite a unique place and proudly boasts as being the only site in the New York Metropolitan area dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale work. On top of that it’s open all year round to the public for free.

The Park’s existence proves that recycling a strip of derelict land in New York can be achieved for greater good, promoting art and a creative place to see it at the same time.
