Hyper-realistic sculptures of swimmers by artist Carole A. Feuerman are making a splash in Manhattan’s Murray Hill neighborhood. Along Park Avenue from 34th Street to 38th Street, you can spot 9 of her larger-than-life works on display throughout this spring and summer. Feuerman is one of the few artists who create outdoor sculptures that appear so real you half expect them to move! The figures along Park Avenue are depicted in various leisurely summer poses, resting on beach balls and inner tubes or diving into an unseen pool.

The sculpture series is presented in conjunction with a gallery exhibition at the Galeries Bartoux on Central Park South. The exhibition, called Sea Idylls, will feature a reconstruction of Feuerman’s studio, her first sculpture, and a selection of exclusive artworks.
