Men At Work NYCWorld Trade Center Tower 4, New York2010-2011
Men At Work NYC was unveiled on 9/11 in NYC around the construction site of World Trade Center Tower 4. The project, which depicts nearly 150 iconic figures, was installed along 1,000 feet of construction parapets on the south and north sides of Liberty Street, between Greenwich and Church, stretching along the southern edge of the World Trade Center construction site.
In its unique location, Men At Work has become a creative tribute to the men and women that have work diligently over the past decade to rebuild the World Trade Center.
The installation offers a new look into the cultural presence of “Working Men”; these signs typically prevent passersby from entering active construction sites, thus becoming symbols of an environment being transformed, and serve as a constant reminder of the never-ending process of urban renewal.
Men At Work is part of the Re:Construction Program by the Alliance for Downtown New York, in collaboration with Silverstein Properties, and was curated by Ayelet Danielle Aldouby and Elinor Milchan of Artea Projects.
Men At Work NYC was selected for the Americans for the Arts Public Art Network 2013 Year in Review.
