After winning a public competition, artists Algernon Miller and sculptor Gabriel Koren collaborated with landscape architect Mark Bunnell of Quenell Rothschild & Partners to design and execute the public circle and monument to African American abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass. Join Algernon Miller and Mark Bunnell as they discuss their collaboration and how landscape design informs site-specific art, and vice versa. About the Harlem Focus series: John Reddick, architectural consultant and Harlem historian, will curate and lead a series of talks featuring designers, architects, and artists whose work engages and affects the local community. From public art and landscape architecture, to rooftop farms and urban woodland restoration, the Harlem Focus series will highlight design issues in Harlem, and how design reflects how this unique neighborhood continues to evolve, change and inspire.
