JUSTICE REFLECTED New Art by James Yaya Hough

November 12, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Opening Celebration

A Conversation between James Yaya Hough and Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood,
James Weldon Johnson Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University, and the curator and author of Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration

“Requiem for Fred Hampton”
by composer and musician Craig Harris & ensemble

Justice Reflected is made possible through a partnership between James Yaya Hough, the Battery Park City Authority, and the Art For Justice Fund, which invests in efforts of artists to bear witness to the injustices of the criminal justice system, elevate the voices of people enmeshed in it, and to imagine alternatives to mass incarceration.

Justice Reflected is the latest addition to Battery Park City’s public art collection of site-specific commissions, environmental landscapes and art, large scale sculpture, and temporary installations that encourage social cohesion and promote awareness about cultural and civic challenges.

Justice Reflected was fabricated at the Eric Okdeh Studio, Philadelphia, PA.

Directions: Enter Battery Park City from the West Side Highway at Liberty Street. Walk one block west then down the ramp toward water to Esplanade Plaza, overlooking the Hudson River.
