POOLTIME is a public artwork by artists Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong and Dev Harlan. In conjunction with NYC Parks, the pavilion will be installed at the north end of Meadow Lake in Flushing Meadows Corona Park this summer 2019. POOLTIME is a public pavilion and series of community programming centered around the rich history of the Park as a site for the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs. POOLTIME activates an underused public space and aims to discuss the World’s Fair structures and their architectural lives and meaning post-exhibition.
