The Coyote Walks
An annual walking project that illustrates a connection between New York City and the wild. It was originally performed to commemorate the spirit of "Hal", a coyote who appeared in Central Park in 2006 and died shortly after being captured and re-released in the forest. The walk begins in the city and remains within sight of a coyote-like path for three days before ending in a relatively wild area. The Coyote Walk has run as an itinerancy, or walking residency since 2014.
