Sheep were grazing along Broadway the other day. Well, they were only paper sheep but they were certainly a sight to see!! Brilliant white sheep standing around in the spring sunshine. The installation comprised of 24 paper sheep and spans 36 feet and is 12 feet wide. All of the sheep are hand-made by artist Kyu Seok Oh in a labor-intense process involving natural and traditional materials.
When I got a closer look they did appear to be a bit confused what with all the traffic and people milling about.
Here is a portrait of one of the sheep in the flock.
And there was more to see across the street from the sheep. Artist’s work had been installed there, too. For several days in March, Broadway at Times Square, besides being one of the busiest streets in the world, was also a gallery. A sign posted near the art work explained: “Times Square Arts, the Public Art Program of Times Square Alliance, is pleased to present for Armory Arts Week sculpures by four artists currently on view at the Armory show.”
This is “Mouse” by Tom Otterness.
This fantastic sculpture titled “Star Fountain (Blue)” was made by Niki De Saint Phalle.
This is a long view from on high of some of the sculptures on Broadway.
