Mark di Suvero's "Joie de Vivre" anchors the southeast corner of Zuccotti Park, located near One Liberty Plaza at Broadway and Liberty Street. The 70-foot-tall sculpture was donated to New York City by Agnes Gund, president of the Museum of Modern Art, and her husband Daniel Shapiro. Originally set in Tribeca at the Holland Tunnel rotary, it has been exhibited in Paris at the Esplanade des Invalides, near Pont Alexandre II bridge and at Storm King Center, New York.
In 2006 Brookfield Properties undertook an $8 million renovation of the lower Manhattan public plaza, formerly called Liberty Plaza Park, and “Joie de Vivre” assumed it’s new prominent location. Di Suvero and his wife Kate Levin, attended the opening ceremony for Zuccotti Park, renamed in honor of John Zuccotti, US Chairman of Brookfield Properties.
