Big Bling

The 40-foot-tall Big Bling, created by artist Martin Puryear and presented by the Association for Public Art in collaboration with Madison Square Park Conservancy, will sit between Kelly Drive and the Schuylkill River until November 2017. The large sculpture and great photo opp is made up of multiple sections of pressure-treated laminated timbers, plywood, chain-link fence, fiberglass and gold leaf.
