A big thanks to everyone who has visited, tweeted, and shared pics (like the ones above) of Lightness of Being. Today is the last day to check out our playful show at City Hall Park!
"One of my favorite moments has been when a German girl, probably no older than 10 approached me, sweetly said ‘guttentag’, and then gave me a side-embrace as her mother took her photo. She seemed sincere in her love, and I was surprised to be hugged by a strange girl."
- from the clown himself.
Tomorrow is your last day to see Lightness of Being at City Hall Park, including the last performance of Ugo Rondinone’s dog days are over!

“Outside, a sculpture is just another thing in the world, it doesn’t have any special status, which is how it should be. Without the context provided by an exhibition situation, people treat a sculpture like any other feature of the built environment: they sit on it if they can, they touch it, some people write their names on it. I try to anticipate that, it’s like a collaboration. A sculpture in public is incomplete without an audience. How people interact with the work forms the meaning of the work.”
