Public Sculptures by George Segal seen at Christopher Street, New York - Gay Liberation

Gay Liberation

Gay Liberation created by George Segal features an ensemble of ghostly white figures around a park bench in Christopher Square. Created in the artist’s signature plaster-cast style, the piece depicts two same-sex couples—one male, the other, female—with the former standing and the latter seated. In both cases, one person can be seen resting a comforting hand on the other as if each couple was engrossed in an intimate conversation.
