2017 brought us a plethora of spectacular installations by renowned artists like Chihuly at the Bronx Botanical Garden and in Union Square; 300 installations by the Public Art Fund created by Ai WeiWei and Debra Kass’ OY/YO at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Many of these unique and magical installations are still on view. Here are an additional five to catch before they close.
5. Public Art Fund’s ‘Earth Potential’ at City Hall Park to Close on November 9
City Hall Park has been invaded by seven large, flat cut aluminum sculptures as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Public Art Fund. Entitled Earth Potential, by artist Katja Novitskova, the installations were created using digitally printed imagery of terrestrial animals and organisms over celestial bodies and planets. Focusing on human advancement, Novitskova imagines worlds unseen by the naked eye.
The exhibit will be on view from June 22 to November 9, 2017 at City Hall Park.
