The internationally renowned public artists Gillie and Marc are bringing A Wild Life for Wildlife, a public sculpture experience to the World Trade Center campus. With these sculptures, the public can touch, play, and encounter wildlife in a way they never would be able to in real life.
The installation will bring a fun, unprecedented pivotal experience. The exhibits include the following sculptures:
The Giant Tandem Bike: Visitors can hop on a giant tandem bike in the city with some of the most endangered animals in the world.
The Rhino & Dogman: The public can join an intensive game of chess between a white rhino and Dogman, one-half of the artist's iconic hybrid duo.
The Elephant & Rabbitwoman: The African elephant Rabbitwoman duo enjoy sharing knowledge and learning. They sit together, reading a book over coffee, inviting the public to sit and join the conversation.
These sculptures will be exhibited for 12-months on South Oculus Plaza.
