Judith Modrak's "Endangered Fossils" outdoor artwork

Judith Modrak’s sculpture “Endangered Fossils” was installed in Flushing Meadows Corona Park earlier this month, and she’s stopping by Aug. 21 to talk about her work.

“The project ponders the origin of the ecosystem we inhabit and our role in it,” Modrak said. The piece is part of the city’s Art in the Park series and will remain on display through May 2022.

The sculpture was inspired by the trilobites, brachiopods and crinoids who lived during the Devonian Period about 400 million years ago, the artist said. The artwork can be found between the Queens Museum and the Unisphere along the Avenue of the States.

Modrak will talk about her work, her influences and more Saturday at 1 pm.
