I wonder if Magnan Metz Gallery appreciates how much they benefit from people who just happen to walk by and are drawn into the gallery because of what they can see from the sidewalk through its huge picture window that looks out on to 26th Street. I think that the past three times I’ve written about one of their exhibits (this one included) it’s been because something cool caught my eye from the street and I went inside to check it out.

I couldn’t find any information or press release about this show on the gallery’s website, but there is some interesting stuff to see. It’s worth checking out if you are already on an art crawl in the area.

Coiled Met Life Building By Alexandre Arrechea

This amazing and fun sculpture of an elongated and coiled Met Life Building is part of No Limits, a series of similar sculptures, each one re-imagining a famous NYC Landmark Towers, all conceived and executed by artist Alexandre Arrechea. These sculpture were just relocated from the Park Avenue Plaza, which divides the two-way traffic on Park Avenue above Grand Central Station, where they were stationed until June 9th. I had the pleasure of discovering this one just adjacent to the Flatiron Building, on 23rd Street where 5th Avenue crosses Broadway. You could have fun looking for them around the city. Keep your camera ready!
