The Sculpture Garden at 590 Madison Avenue currently showcases the work of contemporary artist, Jonathan Prince in an exhibition called TORN STEEL. This is the first public installation of the artist's large scale steel sculptures in New York, on view at the atrium of 590 Madison Avenue through November 18, 2011. TORN STEEL exploits the interruption of geometric forms made of oxidized and stainless steel. The surface of the steel sculptures is ruptured, showing a totally different texture. The torn surfaces are silvery and laboriously polished, and are in contrast to the unworked oxidized steel. 

Jonathan Prince is a Massachusetts based artist that creates abstract sculpture for public and private settings such as the atrium at 590 Madison Avenue. The atrium is a perfect venue for Prince's large format works.
