An Upright Pool Will Arrive in Rockefeller Center This Spring

New, 3 comments

The sculpture, called Van Gogh's Ear, will be on view through June 3.

NYC's long tradition of great public art will continue this spring with a new sculpture coming to Rockefeller Center. Van Gogh's Ear is the work of artists Elmgreen & Dragset, and will stand at the Fifth Avenue entrance to the Channel Gardens at Rockefeller Center. If the photo above isn't telling enough, the sculpture will look like a swimming pool flipped on its side. The artists took inspiration from Marcel Duchamp's readymades, which elevated ordinary objects to high art.

The sculpture comes to NYC through the Public Art Fund and will be on view from April 13 through June 3.
