Since March 8th and until July 20th six sculptures by american artist Alice Aycock grace the Park Avenue malls between 52nd and 57th Streets. There’s a 7th sculpture at 66th Street outside the Park Avenue Armory, which I unfortunately didn’t got to see since I was on my way to the Roosevelt Island tram station on 60th street.

During my last visit in September 2012 I walked down Park Avenue to see sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle and before that 9 sculptures by Venezuelan artist Rafael Barrios were on view (in my post here). Other artists whose sculptures were featured on Park Avenue are Tom Otterness and Robert Indiana. The exhibits are presented by the Fund for Park Avenue and the Public Art Program of the City of New York in collaboration with arts organizations and artists, and in Alice Aycocks case her German dealer Galerie Thomas Schulte and another german investor. The artworks will later be sold, according to the New York Times.
