Written by

Gotham’s ongoing parade of public art projects has recently been joined by a procession of another sort: a piece called A Fancy Animal Carnival. A series of 11 outdoor sculptures by Taiwanese artist Hung Yin, these whimsical beasties are taking up residence on Broadway Pedestrian Plaza, running from 41st to 37th Street in the heart of the Garment District. A former restauranteur-turned-artist, Yin says their colorful designs are based on traditional good luck symbols from Taiwan. The display represents the artist’s first show in New York and remains on view through April of 2017.
