“This public exhibition of 18 sculpture compositions by Peter Woytuk has been organized by the Broadway Mall Association in conjunction with the Parks Department and The Morrison Gallery. The exhibition starts at Columbus Circle with the monumental “Elephant Pair”… The exhibit continues north along Broadway, culminating with the majestic and graceful “2 Bulls” at 168th Street.” source

“Peter Woytuk (American, b. 1958) is recognized internationally for his sculptures of animals. Woytuk cleverly reduces their shapes to essential forms, allowing the power and elegance of his subjects to become both graceful and whimsical expressions of mass. Using a style that is at once descriptive and expressive, Woytuk also enjoys altering the scale of everyday objects such as tools or fruit, which in his hands are transformed into animated participants in the composition.” source
