Friday Follow-Up: Sculptures in NYC

On Friday, March 23rd 2018, I published a post here on Blogger about a public art sculpture known as Wind Sculpture (SG), which was created by Yinka Shonibare and located in the Doris C. Freedman Plaza (near the 59th Street and Fifth Avenue entrance to Central Park.)

Yesterday, I came upon another piece of public art, a sculpture known as Human Structures, which can be seen in the images directly above, where yours truly is checking it out.

And here's what artnet News has to say about it: "As part of its efforts to turn the no-man’s land outside of Penn Station into a welcoming pedestrian plaza hosting seasonal live music and performances, Plaza33 has installed Jonathan Borofsky’s colorful Human Structures outside Madison Square Garden on the East side of 33rd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues."

Borofsky proclaims that the sculpture, Human Structures is “... humanity connecting together to build our world.” And he "encourages people to stand inside the sculpture and become part of the structure..."

As you can see in the images above, I followed his advice, and if you find yourself in NYC, dear reader, I encourage you to do the same!
