SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Convene, a temporary public art project by Xaviera Simmons. Simmons’s project is the third artwork commissioned through SculptureCenter’s art education program Public Process.


Convene is a sculptural installation of aluminum canoes painted with designs that abstractly and explicitly evoke national flags symbolic of the diverse historical and contemporary demographic makeup of Astoria and Long Island City. The work will be installed on land along the East River in Hunter’ Point South Park in Long Island City.
