    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    Rain Bird, 2017

    Polystyrene, scrap aluminum and cans, vinyl, rocks, shell, and water spout 48 x 68 x 70 inches
    This portrait of the Park’s resident horticulturist, Yousif Dawud, evolved from the artist shadowing Socrates’ grounds crew during the artist’s summer residency. Composed of materials found on site, polystyrene washed up from the East River, and an aluminum mask cast from scrap metal, Rain Bird reflects Socrates’ homegrown spirit, restorative origins, and dynamic evolving character.
    Images by Scott Lynch and Sara Morgan.
