NEW YORK (AP) - A whimsical art work resembling child-like clouds is going up in New York’s Central Park next month as part of a new Public Art Fund installation.
The 35-foot-tall work consists of polished blue aluminum in the shape of clouds mounted on makeshift scaffolding.
Appropriately titled “Clouds,” it’s the creation of Swiss artist Olaf Breuning (OH’-lawf BROY’-nihng). It will be installed at the southwest entrance of the park at 60th Street and Fifth Avenue on March 4. It will remain there through Aug. 24.
It is the artist’s largest public installation in the United States.
Another work of his was recently on view at New York’s City Hall Park. It featured enormous monkey-like sculptures called “The Humans.”
He’s known for works that incorporate film, drawing, staged photography and sculpture.
