Eleven large-scale, colorful sculptures entitled A Fancy Animal Carnival are now along the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza in the Garment District. Created by Taiwanese artist Hung Yin, the whimsical sculptures reflect folk culture as well as region, and represent a narrative expressed through traditional Taiwanese symbols, which are believed to bring luck. They also represent the artist’s view of everyday life. A Fancy Animal Carnival is produced in collaboration with The Garment District Alliance, Emmanual Fremin Gallery, InSian Gallery Taiwan, Orangenius, and the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT). The installation will be on view through April 2017 and can be found on Broadway between 37th Street and 41st Street.
