Gas Station/Space 2B gets named “Best Sculpture Garden” by the New York Press

May 12, 1988

A nice profile by Suzanne Slesin for The New York Times.

Of Coraggio’s artworks, she writes, “sometimes tough and predatory-looking, they can also be lyrical and romantic.”

She also makes specific mention of Coraggio’s “Hammer & Sickle” Chair.

Coraggio quote:

“[some of my chairs] have got to be uncomfortable—people in New York don't sit down very long anyway.”
