Union Square, New York, NY
Collaborating with the City of New York Parks Department landscape architects, we created a timeline illustrating the rich history of Union Square.
The timeline consists of twenty bronze panels inset into a block-long ellipse of bluestone pavers with inscribed dates.
The imagery for many of the panels was appropriated from earlier artists who depicted events in the Square. Others reference days past, such as this panel which celebrates the Square as former home to many of NYC's theatres and concert halls.
The timeline is set into the paving at Union Square's southern end.
The timeline starts in Native American times and runs through the late 1800's. Two large embedded maps are also included, which detail how the Square has changed over the years.
