Public Sculptures by Gilmore Clarke seen at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens - Unisphere

Unisphere

Gilmore Clarke designed this world-renown, iconic globe sculpture as a commission in celebration of the beginning of the Space Age for the 1964-1965 World’s Fair in New York.

The Unisphere officially represents the theme of global interdependence and was dedicated to “Man’s Achievements on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe.” However, it can also be seen as an ideal representation of New York City as a multicultural microcosm of the nations of the world.
