Jeff Koons‘ 45-foot tall inflatable nylon sculpture, Seated Ballerina, went up in Rockefeller Center Plaza on May 12th, 2017 and was originally due to be up only through June 2nd. But the sculpture’s tenure was extended by three weeks due to popular demand, which means you still have until this Friday, June 23rd, to make your pilgrimage to Midtown!
Sunday was so very hot and summery here in the City, and I decided to train it uptown, where I visited a street fair, ate ice cream, and walked all around the Seated Ballerina sculpture, taking shots of her from every angle.
The famous golden statue of Prometheus is just in front of her.
And here’s a shot without Prometheus.
I like that she’s up high enough that you can crop tourists out of your pics, or leave them in for life-size-scale comparison.
This one was taken with my iPhone as opposed to my regular camera. The difference in quality is amazing.
Here’s a detailed look at the back of her skirt.
Here she is as seen through the trees from across 50th street!
Jeff Koons Seated Ballerina can be found for a limited time in Rockefeller Center Plaza, bordered by Fifth Avenue to the East, Sixth Avenue to the West, 49th Street to the South and 50th Street to the North.
