But this isn’t your typical majestic, standing-at-attention in New York Harbor Lady Liberty. Instead, the sculpture depicts the famous mascot of NYC lounging in the grass, like most New Yorkers can be seen doing lately in this incredible spring weather.
The creation is by LA artist Zaq Landsberg and was originally on view in Morningside Park in Harlem until April 25, 2022. Then, it was moved across the Hudson at Liberty State Park through April 2023. It is aptly titled “Reclining Liberty.”
Now, it’s having a quick visit at Andrew Logan Projects in Red Hook, Brooklyn, according to the gallery’s website.
Visitors are welcome to interact with it through June 24th, whether climbing, leaning or lounging right alongside her. Viewing hours are as follows: Wed-Friday 2-8 pm; Saturday – Sunday 12-8 pm and by appointment.
According to a press release, it was inspired as a “mashup” of the famous statue and the large reclining Buddhas that can be seen across Asia. It’s also finished with copper paint, to help it look as close to the real Statue of Liberty as possible.
Find it at 384 Van Brunt Street, Brooklyn.
You can also see a permanent version of Reclining Liberty on Staten Island at 1441 South Avenue.
