I was in Times Square over the weekend and saw this amazing Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture. It had a working fountain and you can’t really tell from this picture but it really sparkled in the sun. I was very lucky to see it because it was only there from March 1-7th. Here is a link to the Niki de Saint Phalle site where you can see the full statue installed in a garden.
The description of the work from the site is as follows:
“The sculpture’s illusory effects of light and color and the use of water create a magnetic attraction and meditative sensory experience. Installed in the heart of New York’s theater district, its mirrored and stained glass tesserae, reflecting the city’s flickering lights and vibration, provide a rare opportunity to dive into Saint Phalle’s realm — one of whimsy and fantasy.”
