With artwork from Dorothy Iannones large-scale mural on the High Line, this umbrella is unique in design and utility.В It closesВ outside-inВ so you always stay dry.
For the High Line, Iannone creates a new, large-scale mural installation at 22nd St. IannoneвЂ™s mural features three colorful Statues of Liberty. Between them runs the final line from Emma LazarusвЂ™s poem вЂњThe New Colossus,вЂќ the ode to the freedom promised by immigration to America engraved on a bronze plaque mounted inside the statue at Liberty Island.
IannoneвЂ™s piece was conceived before the recent months of upheaval in the United States around immigration, an already contested topic; these recent debates have raised the Statue of Liberty anew as a symbol of the openness of New York City and the United States to those seeking asylum, freedom, or simply a better life. IannoneвЂ™s vibrant Liberties bring a bit of joy to an often exhausting and demoralizing political debate.
32 inches long. Exclusive for the High Line.
