Day 61: NYC Public Art Tour

In NYC, NYC Art, NYC for free, things to do in NYC on July 31, 2009 at 11:42 pm


Without having to pay a dime to get into a museum you can see a day’s worth of art by simply taking a walk in New York. With permanent commissioned work and short-term installations, public art is all around. Everyone knows Wall Street’s Charging Bull, but many others exist too; you just have to know where to look. Listed here: a few interesting pieces to check out.

The Alamo by Tony Rosenthal at Astor Place between Lafayette and 8th Street; Sun Triangle in the plaza at 1221 Avenue of the Americas; Red Cube by Isamu Noguchi in front of 140 Bowery between Liberty and Cedar Streets; Throwback by Tony Smith at 45th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues; Larger than life male and female nudes, Adam and Eve by Fernando Botero in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle; Group of Four Trees by Jean Dubuffet at Chase Manhattan Plaza; Malcolm Cochran’s 30-foot bronze wine bottle at Pier 96; Three Way Piece: Points by Henry Moore at Columbia University; (Shown here) Wind-Up Hello Kitty by Tom Sachs at Lever House (until September 6).
