NYC – Park Avenue Statues

Park Avenue and 60th

In New York City, the impact of Public Art  on local communities brings a lot of joy to our lives. Also, most of it is free! Here are six pictures of Park Avenue between east 60th and east 55th Streets

Niki de Saint Phalle’s signature work comes to Park Avenue with this major, site-specific installation. Ten sculptures made of polyester resin, with mosaics of ceramic, mirror, and stained glass tower above the crowds and traffic at as high as 16 feet tall and 13 feet wide. The internationally acclaimed artist’s sculptural nanas, totems, athletes, and jazz musicians are playful and dynamic, bringing new life to Park Avenue. This exhibition coincides with the ten year commemoration of Niki de Saint Phalle’s passing, celebrating the life and achievements of a monumental artist.
