It should come as no great surprise that The Street Spot loves the sculptural installation work of Leon Reid. I think he has managed to strike a good balance in remaining true to his roots while navigating the bureaucratic hurdles that come with installing Public Art. He has chosen a typically ambitious project to realize during this October’s annual Art in Odd Places festival. Continuing along the lines of his True Yank installation around Abraham Lincoln in Manchester, England from two years ago, he plans to make a humorous, temporary transformation of a statue of George Washington in Union Square Park. Please consider making a small donation to help Leon make the Tourist-in-Chief a reality.
