Kiki Smith’s Fountain to Debut at the Girls Club

Artist Kiki Smith has designed a custom fountain as a gift to the Lower Eastside Girls Club — an organization that runs dynamic after-school, weekend, and summer programs for local girls and young women — in honor of the Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community, the building on Avenue D between 7th and 8th Streets that the group moved into in 2013 as its first and only permanent home. The sculpture will be featured in the building’s outdoor courtyard, underwritten by The Philip and Janice Levin Foundation. Next week, Smith will join director of the Andy Warhol Museum Eric Shiner at the Center as part of a special private dedication for the piece. Fountain was custom designed by Kiki Smith as a gift to The Lower Eastside Girls Club in honor of the new building.
