On a Fence, 2013 Photo: Paths to Pier 42

More public art is on the way for the Lower East Side’s own Pier 42.

Chat Travieso, an exercised artist in outdoor works, is bringing his creativity to the neighborhood. His latest project builds on his 2013 Paths to Pier 42 installation, “On a Fence,” which turned a section of the fence enclosing the park into an interactive structure that incorporated signage, seating and play areas. Its sponsorship is packed with a slew of LES organizations, too: Good Old Lower East Side, Hester Street Collaborative, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council. The location is slated for the south side of FDR Drive, with entrances at the East River Greenway at Montgomery Street and through Corlears Hook Park at Cherry Street.

Chat is looking for some able arms to paint and build – if you can help, give him a shout at 305.903.8465 or

The schedule for volunteers is as follows:

Thursday, June 26, 11am – 3pm
Saturday, June 28, 2pm – 7pm
Thursday, July 3, 10am – 7pm
Sunday, July 6, 10am – 7pm
