Target Benchmarks Central Park

As a featured project of the Park’s yearlong 150th Anniversary celebrations, the Central Park Conservancy and Target Stores invited 53 eminent New York artists, architects, designers, and celebrities to use their creative talents in turning traditional park benches into unique works of art as part of the Target Benchmarks Central Park project.  Each artist was provided with a four-foot long unfinished wooden slat Central Park bench. 

These are the photos of Anthony Haden-Guest's work. 

The benches were auctioned off at Christie's. The profits went to the Central Park Conservancy. 

Architect Charles Gwathmey provided the photo of the bench on the left, which was the logo for the event.
