  • From Rockefeller Center to Madison Square Park and the Park Avenue median, public art has become increasingly prominent around New York. Among the memorable projects in recent years were Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s 
    The Gates winding through Central Park, Olafur Eliasson’s New York City Waterfalls edging the lower harbor, and Tatzu Nishi’s Discovering Columbus, a living room constructed around the column-top statue of the explorer at Columbus Circle, a hot ticket earlier this year.


    Thanks to nonprofits including the Public Art Fund and Creative Time, these and other temporary installations provide aesthetic enjoyment and edification to residents and sightseers, and do so free of charge. Their presence reflects the ethos of a sophisticated democratic city that prides itself as the world leader in cultural vibrancy and innovation.

    From Rockefeller Center to Madison Square Park and the Park Avenue middle, open workmanship has turned out to be progressively noticeable around New York. Among the huge undertakings as of late were Christo and Jeanne-Claude's twisting through Central Park, Olafur Eliasson' edging the lower harbor, and Tatzu Nishi's a parlor developed around the section beat statue of the pilgrim at Columbus Circle, a hot ticket prior this year. EssayTiger
