Just in time for Spring, Olaf Breuning’s installation, Clouds arrived in Central Park on March 4th. The six Bright Blue Clouds tower nearly 35 feet above the plaza at the intersection of 5th Avenue and 60th Street just on the border of the Park. Held aloft among the trees by rudimentary steel supports, the Clouds are made of polished and painted aluminum and were cut to match a hand drawing by the artist.

Calling to mind the set design of a school play or child-like drawings of the sky, the idea for this work is inspired by one of the artist’s staged photographs. For that earlier work, Breuning used cranes and cherry pickers to raise large blue drawings of clouds high in the air, creating a momentary scene to be captured by the camera.

French artist Francois Xavier Lalanne and Paul Kasmin Gallery are in the process of transforming the Getty service station located at the Northwest corner of Tenth Avenue and 27th Street into an urban Sheep Meadow and it’s a total kick!
The installation is almost finished and it’s easy to take lots of pictures from the sidewalk, but it won’t be officially open until Tuesday, September 17th, at which point viewers may enter the space and walk among the sheep.
Getty Sheep Station By Francois Xavier Lalanne will be on Exhibit to all who wander by from September 17th to October 2oth, 2013, just across the street from the Paul Kasmin Gallery.
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!
