“Abraham Lincoln: War Veteran Projection,” on view 6pm – 10pm each day from November 8 – December 9 in Union Square Park North at 16th Street; opening reception on November 8 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Polish-born Wodiczko is world-renowned for his large-scale light projections on architectural facades and monuments. For this project, Wodiczko interviewed 30 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans and families, recorded their war experiences and created sound and light projections with each person’s own words, voice and gestures to animate the bronze Lincoln statue that has stood silently in Union Square since 1870. “As our troops withdraw from Afghanistan, this commemorative statue, commissioned just a few years after the Civil War, again becomes a place for dialogue about war,” says Martegani. She also hopes the project will “give new meaning to this historical civic monument, causing New Yorkers to stop and reflect on our history and its consequences.”

University Student Night, on Veterans Day, November 12 at 6pm, will allow students to meet in front of the statue with the artist to ask questions and have a discussion. A panel entitled “War, Trauma and Public Art” is currently being rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy but will take place at NYU; check for updates.
