New York, the City of Surprises.

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.

  1. I love the last red one that forms a circle.
    I love their size-I want to climb them!

    • Yay Susan!! I’m so excited that you’re going to see these with your daughter!
      I have an assignment for you: To take a picture of you or your daughter with the red piece that forms a circle holding a sign that says: ART IS A WAY. Yay!!!! I would love to see that. The sign could be just a regular letter size paper.
