“Yuan” is back at the Rose Garden

O
n August 21st, we wrote of changes at the Central Park Rose Garden, in preparation for construction of a pergola in the Garden this Fall. A major change was removal of Robert Blood’s sculpture Variations on the Chinese Character “Yuan”, to make room for the pergola, with a promise that The Yuan would return. I am pleased to say that Yuan Is Back, reinstalled in a far front corner, close to the Crime Victims section, near the roundabout at Iroquois Way and Monument Hill, and across from the Dog Park.

This posting has images of the re-installed sculpture, from various perspectives. Although it is currently standing on a bare patch of crushed stone, it will again be surrounded by bushes and plantings either before winter or in the Spring. Click on the inividual photos for a larger version.

Here’s my favorite photo of the Yuan in its original location. It’s impressionist feel says “unfocused” to some viewers, but now it whispers “hazy memory” to me.
