Today’s news:

‘Horsing Around’ at Pearl St.

The Dumbo Improvement District, in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program, installed the work of DUMBO resident and artist Eleanora Kupencow, entitled “Horsing Around the Arrows of Time,” in the Pearl Street Triangle.

Adjacent to the Manhattan Bridge and DOT’s iron shop and fabricated out of powder−coated steel, the bold and colorful sculptures pay homage to DUMBO’s manufacturing and industrial story.

The four pieces in “Horsing Around the Arrows of Time” were designed individually — the Purple King, the Blue Thinker, the Magenta Acrobats and the Green Mother Earth. When arranged in a group, the sculptures work together to create a feeling of movement and energy.

The Pearl Street Triangle was created by the Dumbo Improvement District and DOT in 2007 to transform underutilized space, which was previously 12 parking spaces, into an attractive plaza complete with tables and chairs and able to accommodate a host of uses. The community immediately took to the Triangle, now a frequent destination and public art gallery.
