Public Art Travel: Tree Houses in NYC
New York will get another big time public art installation before its waterfalls have even been put away for the winter. Tadashi Kawamata's "Tree Huts" will start going up in Madison Square Park beginning September 23, and the exhibition officially opens October 2.
The pieces, which basically look like treehouses, will be created on site, using at least some found materials from the park. Maybe that means Shake Shack burger wrappers will be involved?
The huts will be similar to installations the artist created for Art Basel 2007 and other recent shows in Europe. It'll be the first time Kawamata's worked in New York since 1992.
