Brushstroke Group is a public sculpture by pop arist Roy Liechtenstein that you can hardly miss if you are walking on Seventh Avenue between Madison Square Garden /Penn Station and Macys. The problem is: it’s nearly impossible to get photos that don’t have a ton of people them. Because, Midtown.

Lichtenstein liked the idea of making brushstrokes that were not brushstrokes so much, he finally arrived at the idea of making a brushstroke that is actually a sculpture. His sculpture on 7th Avenue and 33rd Street is a 3D version of his brushstroke paintings — and only one of many other, different Brushstroke Group sculptures located in other US cities.

This same sculpture was previously displayed at Navy Pier in Chicago in 2012. At some point, it will surely move along to a new home.
