New York, the City of Surprises.
Something special is happening in NYC and I wish that I could be there to enjoy it. Some of my friends flew to the Big Apple just to experience the event with their own eyes. We’re taking about Cuban-born artist Alexandre Arrechea‘s first large-scale public art exhibition titled “No Limits.” The exhibit features 10 recognizable but reimagined New York City buildings, in a series of steel and aluminum sculptures, up to 20 feet in height. These beautiful pieces can be seen along Manhattan’s Park Avenue.
On display until June 9, the installation is being done in collaboration with Magnan Metz Gallery, the Fund for Park Avenue Sculpture committee and the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation. An exhibition of Arrechea’s watercolors, video work and smaller sculptures will run at Phillips’s Park Avenue site in New York in April. Magnan Metz says that all of the pieces are for sale—even the ones that weigh 12,000 pounds.

If you’re in NYC and get to see these sculptures in person, please take some pictures of you next to them before they’re gone, and then send them to me!
