The sun can be seen setting through Baile Oakes' interactive wood sculpture entitled "Gestation III," 1991, marking the winter solstice at Palisades Park on Friday, December 21, 2018. During only the 3 days of the winter solstice, the Sun sets exactly in the middle of the sculptures opening. The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year.
