Lincoln Center was covered for months in greenery that made it more welcoming to people who wanted to hang out in grassy chairs or lounge on curved surfaces. Artist Mimi Lien had said that she wanted to activate the space and make it more inclusive.
“To create the space, I decided to make the green grass curve up at either end. I call it a halfpipe,” she said in an interview with the Columbia News Service. “A flat piece of grass just didn’t contain the energy. So, I was conceiving of it as both a green space and performance space.”
On Tuesday, the project was deconstructed and carted away. Stephen Harmon was there with his camera.
As of Wednesday, the final small pieces were taken away.
