Nestled midblock in East Harlem is a large, abstract red sculpture called Growth that perfectly captures the vitality of its bustling neighborhood. Created by artist Jorge Luis Rodriguez in May 1985, Growth was the first public work of art commissioned by the public, as part of the Department of Cultural Affairs’ Percent for Art program. On its 25th anniversary, the Growth sculpture underwent a full restoration. With support from the Citywide Monuments Conservation Program and the Art & Antiquities unit of the NYC Parks Department, Mr. Rodriguez completed the work on June 25, 2010.
