The “Alamo” Cube turns 50! Join the official birthday party for the iconic sculpture by Tony Rosenthal, installed in 1967 as part of the "Sculpture and the Environment" project, organized by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Share your birthday wishes, celebrate on the sidewalk, create and collage mini spinning cubes, fold origami cubes, learn the history of the Cube with mini-walking tours around the square, keep the cube spinning for charity, and much more!

Speakers will salute 50 years of one of New York's most iconic and engaging public works of art.
