AIDS Memorial Park Gets Its Finishing Touch


The long-planned pavilion at the AIDS Memorial at St. Vincent's Hospital Park -- aka "the AIDS Park" -- has finally been unveiled. (Photo by me!) The cement beneath the 18-foot steel canopy features circular text curated by a team of historians, artists, community members and activists led by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner -- a loving tribute to the many people the city lost to the plague, although a giant high-heel might have been more fun!

I walked by this the other night and was not impressed - this is the best design thet could come up with?

Pretty.

from the outside, it's more of a "meh". But from underneath, it is... peaceful, cathedral like. My only issue, is that the designs that were agreed on that I recall, called for the sculpture to be wrapped in living vines. Will that come later as the seasons warm up? I didn't see any empty planters.
