Martin Puryear Big Bling in Philadelphia

Following its debut in New York at Madison Square Park, the Association for Public Art will present Martin Puryear's Big Bling in Philadelphia. Big Bling will be on view from June through November on Kelly Drive between Fountain Green Drive and Girard Avenue Bridge. This is a first-time collaboration between Madison Square Park Conservancy and the Association for Public Art.

Big Bling is comprised of a multi-tier wood sculpture wrapped in fine chain-link fence. A gold-leafed shackle is anchored near the top of the structure. At forty feet high, thirty-eight feet across and ten feet deep, it is the artist's largest temporary outdoor sculpture to date.
