Jonathan Monk created two temporary skateable sculptures based on concrete works by the minimalist master Sol LeWitt, which have been installed in Paine’s Park and will remain there through November 2015. These large sculptures are unusual, interactive additions to the park, inviting skaters of all ages to touch, step, and skate upon their surfaces – public artworks that invite direct, physical interaction from the viewer. Monk’s Open Source project exemplifies his practice of reinterpreting works of conceptual art through humor, and challenges the typically precious nature of art objects.
