Framing the View, up Broadway

Rubber Art, nyc
Photo by myself around 36th Street and Broadway, in Midtown.

Several large scale sculptures by the artist Chakaia Booker stand along a stretch of Broadway, in Midtown.

These large, black sculptures are made of recycled rubber from tires. The pieces are woven, tacked and/or tied together to make huge, looming structures that evoke scales, feathers and other natural materials.

Above, one sculpture frames the view north, up Broadway. What look like tentacles seem to make the artwork come to life. The sculptures will remain for view through November.

For more about the artist, including images of all five sculptures that comprise 'The Sentinels' series, click here.

That is quite the sight. It reminds me of "mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all".

What another creative way to recycle the zillions of tyres all over the world. This is very arty Kitty.
