Airplane Art, Outside the Plaza Hotel

Paola Pivi sculpture, nyc Photo by myself at 60th Street and Fifth Avenue.

A kinetic sculpture was being installed at the southeast corner of Central Park, the other day.

By the artist Paola Pivi, the sculpture is composed of a real twin engine plane is suspended by its wingtips. When fully installed, the plane will spin around, doing somersaults (!).

The tall white building in the background is the Plaza Hotel. I will have to revisit very soon and take a photo of the plane when upside down!

The sculpture is sponsored by the Public Art Fund. For more about the sculpture and artist, see the Public Art Fund website, here.

A view from the top of The Plaza must be awesome.

I realize that sculpture took skill, effort, time, and there's some concept involved, but I can't warm to it--the way I did to your photo yesterday, a less happy subject, but so well-composed and interesting.

I might just check rates at the Plaza. I'll probably pass out.
