Doris C. Freedman Plaza


The Doris C. Freedman Plaza is located at the southeast corner of Central Park and is home to rotating sculptural art installations, courtesy of the City's Public Art Fund. It is named for the founder of the Public Art Fund and has been the site of more than 75 projects since 1977.In 1981, Mayor Ed Koch dedicated the plaza to Freedman who died earlier that year at the age of 53. As the first director of the Public Art Fund, Freedman sought to make art accessible beyond museums and galleries and to create more opportunities for New Yorkers to experience art in their everyday environment.
