Art in Washington Market Park

Currently we have one art installation in Washington Market Park: Frank Ape’s Picnic.

Frank Ape’s Picnic is a series of seven murals atop the picnic tables in Washington Market Park. Painted onsite by contemporary New York artist Brandon Sines in May 2023, the murals feature Sines’ whimsical creature Frank Ape enjoying his favorite park activities. From playing tennis and basketball to gardening, admiring butterflies, strolling with baby Frank, and practicing yoga, Frank Ape relishes his time at play and at rest in the park!

Community, creativity, and self-expression are core values in Sines’ Frank Ape art. Recently Sines was awarded a massive installation at the World Trade Center and had a series of works featured on Link NYC’s digital kiosks as part of #ArtOnLink. He recently collaborated with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum to officially celebrate the Guggenheim’s 60th Anniversary with two Frank Ape-themed pieces. His work is collected worldwide.
