GHENT, NY.- Brazilian artist Iran do Espírito Santo's monumental cast concrete sculpture, Playground, originally commissioned by the Public Art Fund for exhibition in NYC's Central Park has found a new home at Omi International Arts Center's Fields Sculpture Park. Four of Santo's gallery works are also on view at Omi through May 15 to complement the sculpture.

Santo will be on hand at Omi's Benenson Visitor Center (1405 County Route 22, Ghent NY 12075) for an artist talk and opening reception featuring light refreshments. The event is free and open to the public.

Santo is one of Brazil's most highly regarded contemporary artists, known for his austere yet sensuous drawings, wall paintings and sculptures. His works have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide; and are included in the collections of many prominent international museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. His works have been included in the Venice Biennale, the Bienal de São Paulo, and the Istanbul Biennal. Recent exhibitions have included The Portrait as an Image of the World at the Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, Brazil and Present Tense at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Playground is his first public work in the United States.
