Untapped Cities has often encouraged readers to look up. Tom Friedman’s whimsical thirty-three foot tall figure entitled Looking Up is part of a series, with the largest of these works acquired by The Contemporary Austin. New York received a similar thirty-three foot sculpture which will be on view through June 2016. Looking Up is a collaboration between the Luring Augustine galleries, Fund for Park Avenue and New York City Parks. Looking up is located on Park Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets.
