Boys Cry Too is located on the banks of Brays Bayou on the Bayou Parkland side of the Park next to the Bill Coats Bridge, between South MacGregor Way and Almeda Road.
New York-based artist, Orly Genger, re-imagined a previous work for Hermann Park’s landscaping alongside Brays Bayou. An emerging talent, Genger has garnered attention for her large-scale constructions of brightly painted, knotted nautical rope. Spanning the genres of craft and fine art, Genger mines the intimate, domestic, and traditionally feminine practice of knitting to create sprawling, monumental installations. Genger’s Boys Cry Too lies directly on the grass and measures 225 feet long and 17 feet wide. Boys Cry Too is painted in a wide range of colors including Eggnog, Springtime Bloom, and Limeade. Boys Cry Too will be on view until March 2015.
