Public Sculptures by Noa Bornstein seen at Tribeca Park, New York - Live Well! with visitor

Live Well! with visitor

Bronze figure, 11", welded to a bronze pine tree base. Total height 4’ 1". This installation of Live Well! was sponsored by NYC Parks Department’s Art in Parks Program. The figure is my father…who I saw in a kind of vision after his death. He’s lifted his hat and is waving at us, encouraging us to go on, live! And do it as well as we can.

It was located in TriBeCa Park in 2000 for about a year. It since had several other one year installations, including in Baltimore, Maryland, and Lakeland, Florida

Meet the Creator

"Sculptor and painter (focus on drawing) Noa Bornstein was born in San Rafael, California and grew up in Los Angeles. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art from the University of California at Santa Cruz. Her sculpture is represented in Northern California by Sculpturesite. She moved to New York City in 1986, directly from Europe after a traveling show of drawing studies for her 100' L.A. mural showed at cultural institutions in Belgium and Vienna Austria. In New York, she completd a 90' mural commission for the Harlem Rehabilitation Center in 1987. Her work developed into 3 dimensions almost suddenly after the death of her father in 1994. She has related that "perhaps it was the only sculpture that could get at the changing shape of the cloud in my father's profile." Her Duo show, "Survival of the Fittest" at P339 Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, November 2013, featured her life-size and miniature animal sculptures that were available to be touched. Bornstein's sculpture, Scapegoat, made from a bench, was available to sit on. Recent group exhibitions of drawings include "Discourse on Drawing, International Contemporary Drawing", at the University of North Carolina, Asheville, 2017."
