Broadway is a very, very long street in Manhattan, and is home to much more than just shopping and theater crowds. In fact, Broadway is where one of my favorite art galleries is located: in the median that runs down the center of it. This ‘gallery' always features big, outstanding pieces of artwork on display–thanks to the tireless work of the Broadway Mall Association.
The current works which were installed in May 2017 are by Joy Brown and are on display only until next month (November 2017). They start at 168th and are located at these eight locations down Broadway: 168th, 157th, 148th, 117th, 103rd, 96th, 79th, and 72nd. You can ride the subway (1), take the bus (M104), or walk to as many of these as you desire.
The fun thing about these pieces of art is that they are totally accessible, as you can see here in these photos.
Kids can crawl on them, people can sit on them, and plastic bags can get caught up on them.
I’m not sure what will come next after Joy Brown packs up her bronze people and heads home, but I’m counting on the good folks at the Broadway Mall Association to continue to wow me.
