Overlooking the Hudson River, this 80-ft. tall installation is renowned artist Jaume Plensa’s tallest public sculpture to date. It depicts the serene face of a young subject holding a finger to her lips in a state of silent contemplation. Water’s Soul nods to the historic Hudson River waterfront pier on which it is situated, a locale that bore witness to much of the trade coming in and out of New York Harbor on ferries and rail barges during the 19th and early-20th centuries. Plensa’s site-specific sculpture acknowledges this past while expressing the collective hope for humanity to build a better world.
