Sundog Theatre, Inc. with Lina Montoya and students from PS 39: “The Immigrant Journey – Past Meets Present”
A collaboration between artist Lina Montoya and students from P.S. 39, this installation at Arrochar Playground was inspired by the Staten Island Ferry and the boats that came to Ellis Island and is a tribute to immigrant communities. On view until June 12, it is attached to a fence and features a boat full of butterflies, the Statue of Liberty, an airplane, and a square figure that represents the southern border.
