So long to the Oracle of Tompkins Square Park



After nearly a year in Tompkins Square Park, artist Jorge Luis Rodriguez has removed his sculpture titled "The Oracle of the Past, Present and Future." (You can read more about the sculpture on our previous post.)

George Trakas (pictured on the left), who was Rodriguez's art teacher in 1976, helped with the removal today...



...as did EVG correspondent Steven, who took these photos and was also recruited to assist ...

Here's the Oracle-less plot of Park land...



Glad that this art fared much better in the the Park than other sculptures did.

The Oracle was a thoughtful & beautiful installation by the artist who was the first Percent for Art sculpture artist in this City - and The Oracle was part of the 30th Anniversary of his first piece, entitled 'Growth'. Love his work. Thanks to EV Grieve for great pic's and coverage.
