Scarecrows by Thomas + Guinevere
Scarecrows is an installation transposing the history of creative and historically important individuals from Queens into a field of free-standing, larger than life sculptures designed in the spirit of scarecrows and erected to protect the creative spirit of the Park.

As an extension of the installation, Jenny-Anne McCowan (Guinevere) will lead a pubic-participatory performance inspired by both the Scarecrows and The Wizard of Oz. Movement-based and simple in it’s form, audience members are invited to copy the choreography while expanding the footprint of the Scarecrows for a grand culminating celebration. Dancers, movers and shakers from all backgrounds and levels of expertise are encouraged to join in. If you have previous dance experience, you can also register to participate as a team leader!
