Manhattan

Mrs Fringe Takes a Day Trip

More like an hour than a day, but still. I was outside of my comfort zone, ok?!

Today’s post is pretty much snark free, photo intensive. I’m not much of a photographer, but I thought it would be cool to share.

There are free,temporary, often interesting art exhibits/installations mounted in Manhattan. This morning Husband and I went to see Discovering Columbus, by the Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi. He designed a living space around the 13 foot statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle. Normally this statue is in the middle of the circle, unnoticed and exposed to the designs of innumerable pigeons. The statue itself is on top of a granite column, reaching about 75 feet in total. To reach the exhibit (enclosed by scaffolding), you climb up 6 flights of temporary metal stairs, and then down another set after viewing.
