_MG_8617_park Ave painting

I am not much into fashion but as I walked past several stores I couldn’t help but notice the attractive ways these merchants displayed their products.

The first store is called “Steiger”. I noticed that many leading ladies at the Tribeca Film Festival were wearing Walter Steiger… must be fashionable and expensive!

I took some time to look in the windows of the shops next door…Stefano Ricci and E. Braun & Co. Here is a sample of what they were displaying.

Alexandre Arrechea’s No Limits, a new site-specific installation transforms New York City’s famed Park Avenue with 10 large scale sculptures embodying New York’s most prominent buildings. Iconic landmarks represented include:

  • Chrysler Building, Citicorp Center,
  • Empire State Building, Flatiron building,
  • Helmsley Building, MetLife Building,
  • Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower, Seagram Building,
  • Sherry Netherland, and US Courthouse.

The sculptures, which will appear to roll, wind, and spin their way down Park Avenue from 54th to 67th Street, reach towering heights of up to 20 feet.

I took a walk down Park Avenue on a beautiful sunny Sunday. Here are some photographs ( One Click on photo for slide show)

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.
