Public Art

August is creeping by and with it, a spate of public artwork worth paying attention to, seeing as how they are huge and impossible to avoid. The Times surveys the current crop, including the monolithic, warped head in Madison Square Park , the large-scale Robert Adams photograph on the High Line, and the 27 geometric Sol LeWitt sculptures in City Hall Park. Our probable favorite is the "deceptively cuddly" giant teddy bear by Urs Fischer parked in front of the Seagram Building—it's made of cast bronze and weighs nearly 17 tons. [NYT]
