SculptureCenter is pleased to participate in It's Happening! Celebrating 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks. On Saturday, October 21, 11am-3pm, NYC Parks will partner with a citywide group of artists and institutions to transform Central Park into a stage, museum, and art studio for a free day of public art celebrating this milestone.

SculptureCenter and artist Tuguldur Yondonjamts will present Yondonjamts' Artificial Falcon Nest, a new sculpture and intuitive group drawing project led by the artist. Yondonjamts' sculpture references structures installed by environmental preservation organizations in eastern Mongolia to promote wild falcon breeding. His work typically evokes long journeys, impermanence, and a survivalist ingenuity. The program will take place at East Pinetum in Central Park, near The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Tuguldur Yondonjamts (b. Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia; lives and works in New York and Mongolia) is an artist who works across drawing, installation, and video. His work has recently been shown at Richard Tattinger Gallery, New York (2017); The Drawing Center, New York (2017); Para-Site, Hong Kong (2017); SculptureCenter, New York (2016); and the American Museum of Natural History, New York (2015). He holds a degrees from Columbia University, New York (MFA, 2014); UdK, Berlin (2004) and The University of Arts & Culture, Ulaanbaatar (Thangka painting, 1997).
