13. Hacer: Transformations
Presented by the Garment District Alliance as part of their Art on the Plazas program and Fremin Gallery, Hacer: Transformations is a series of seven origami-inspired sculptures located on the public plazas of Broadway between 36th and 39th Streets. Created by California artist Hacer using powder-coated steel, the sculptures featured include two dark turquoise coyotes, two medium turquoise rabbits, a magenta elephant, a yellow dog, and a green bear cub. Hacer’s work aims to elicit a dynamic response about each viewer’s relationship to their childhood, encouraging them to start anew. Hacer: Transformations will be on display through November 23, 2021.
As Emmanuel Fremin, owner of Fremin Gallery, stated: “We are delighted to present Hacer: Transformations, in which the whimsical works are transforming Broadway for New Yorkers and visitors alike. Following more than a year of COVID-19 related restrictions, the outdoor show of Hacer’s work brings cheer and optimism to the heart of New York City.”
