New York Art

 On our tours of New York, by the Flat Iron building some interesting sculptures were pointed out to us. Artist, Antony Gormley had created a number of self-portrait sculptures which had been installed on the edges of a number of roof tops. Unfortunately a number of 911 calls had also been placed soon after, because people thought that the statues were men trying to commit suicide. These sculptures will be on the roof tops from March 26th until August 15, 2010. The show is called EVENT HORIZON.

The pictures we took didn't turn out very well (Remember some of these are dozens of stories up). We were also trying to take them while touring on a moving double decker bus.

However, I managed to find some on the web, and those are the ones in this post.
