New York-based artist Orly Genger re-imagined a work for Hermann Park’s landscaping alongside Brays Bayou. An emerging talent, Genger has garnered attention for her large-scale constructions of brightly painted, knotted nautical rope. Spanning the genres of craft and fine art, Genger mines the intimate, domestic, and traditionally feminine practice of knitting to create sprawling, monumental installations. Genger’s Boys Cry Too lies directly on the grass and measures 225 feet long and 17 feet wide. The installation received national recognition as one of the best public art projects of 2015 by Americans for the Arts.
