Description

World-renowned visual artist Kehinde Wiley’s first ever monumental public sculpture and largest work to date, Rumors of War, is now on display in Times Square until December 1 on the Broadway Plaza between 46th and 47th Streets. In conjunction with the installation, Times Square Arts has launched a team of 15 rotating Public Art Ambassadors who are stationed by the work each day from 2:00 – 8:00pm to act as docents for all who encounter the sculpture.

Wiley is best known for his vibrant portrayals of contemporary African-American and African-Diasporic individuals that subvert the hierarchies and conventions of European and American portraiture. Rumors of War stands as a statue to the violence afflicted against bodies every day, and presents a powerful visual repositioning of young black men in our public consciousness while directly engaging the national conversation around controversial monuments and their role in perpetuating incomplete narratives and contemporary inequities.

Following its presentation in Times Square, Rumors of War will be permanently installed on Arthur Ashe Boulevard in Richmond at the entrance to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VFMA).
