NYC Parks Commissioner, UNIQLO Global Corporate Social Responsibility director Jean Shein and artists celebrated the new public art installations created by the Arts in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant recipients.

The event was held on Tuesday, June 20 at Joyce Kilmer Park where artists Patricia Cazorla and Nancy Saleme installed their exhibit ‘Flying High for Equality’ and featured a performance by Garifuna artist James Lovell.

Artists Cazorla and Saleme used oversized, colorful sculptures of the city’s sparrows as a metaphor for the search for equality.
