discovering columbus_statuesque walk around

Christopher Columbus as the centerpiece of this installation by Tatzu Nishi.  It was pretty awesome to be sitting in a living room built around a statue that is typically out of reach by everyone except the pigeons.  No touching however. Here are some views as I take a lap around the statue.  Detail shots in upcoming posts.

discovering columbus_the approach

A rare opportunity to get up close to the Christopher Columbus Statue at Columbus Circle which stands on top of a tall column pedestal out of reach on any other day.  Tatzu Nishi built a living room around the statue of Columbus for everyone to sit, relax and admire the statue and the great views of the Upper West Side and Central Park.  Here are views of the approach to the installation–a little room atop scaffolding that is equally as geometrically cool as what is inside.  The exhibit is free.  Tickets available online.  The exhibit is ongoing until November 18th and I highly recommend going if you have time!  See other posts for interior shots.

UPDATE: open for 2 extra weeks due to popular demand!
