Statues of Central Park

In this section, you will find a comprehensive list of the statues and decorative art in Central Park. Some statues by the same artist, or two pieces in the same location, are described as a set, like Dancing Goat and Honey Bear, but most are described as unique works. The works are provided in alphabetical order, although many are listed by the last name of the subject, the name we expect you to search for. For example, you will find Beethoven under "B" rather than Ludwig and Schiller under "S" rather than Friedrich. To learn more about a work, just scroll through the thumbnail images below and click on the work of interest. You will find basic information for each work, multiple photos (including closeups of details), a map to help you locate the piece in the Park, and text describing how the work came to be in the Park or perhaps something of interest about the artist. To locate a work by name, you can just click on the Statues drop-down menu and scroll through to the piece you want. Enjoy!
