Event Description

New public artwork by Matthew Geller. Commissioned by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art Program, Department of Transportation, and Department of Design & Construction.

“I ought to” is a trio of round stools capped by a circular corten steel and hand-cast glass concave canopy. The canopy is a witty conflation of the pedestrian and the sacred: a 19th century illuminated manhole cover enlarged to the size of a rose window. It includes a passive water feature activated by the rain.
