Here’s something you can’t do most days in NYC: stand near-eye-level (okay, maybe waist-level) with a 13-foot statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle. That’s because most days Chris is atop a 75-foot column overlooking Columbus Circle. But Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi, in conjunction with the Public Art Fund, erected a “living room” around the statue 70 feet above ground with old Christophe as the centerpiece of the living room. It’s a cool site to see, but it’s only up until Sunday, December 2. Tickets are needed to enter the installation.
Here are a few shots I took of the exhibit:
