8. “Fat Boy” Graces the Lawn in Prospect Park
Standing 9.5 feet tall, and with a width of 8.5 feet, Leonard Ursachi’s “Fat Boy” graces the lawn in Prospect Park this Summer. As part of his “bunker” series, Ursachi’s “Fat Boy” is a signifier with its cherubic face, but also a signifier of the WWII atomic bombs, Little Boy and Fat Man, giving the sculpture twin references. The “bunker series” references not only war, but nesting, shelter and refuge. Fat Boy can be seen in Prospect Park. Its companion, Behind Fat Boy can be seen at the Brooklyn Public Library. Both will be on view through September 25, 2015.
