New York Avenue Sculpture Project: Betsabeé Romero



Signals of a Long Road Together comprises four sculptures developed expressly for this installation.

Daily, Now - May 02, 2021.

The dynamic works of Mexico City-based artist Betsabeé Romero form the newest chapter in NMWA's public art program, the New York Avenue Sculpture Project, established in 2010. Using a process similar to tattooing, Romero carves figures and intricate patterns into the sidewalls and treads of tires, which are then filled with gleaming metallic paint. The tires are assembled into totemic structures that speak to themes of human migration and the natural environment.

New York Avenue Sculpture Project: Betsabeé Romero is made possible with funding provided by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Public Art Building Communities Program, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, with support provided by the Sue J. Henry and Carter G. Phillips Exhibition Fund. The exhibition is organized by the museum in partnership with the DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) and with assistance from the Embassy of Mexico’s Cultural Institute.
