RFR recently unveiled a new sculpture by renowned artist KAWS, on the Seagram Building Plaza at 375 Park Ave. The 20-foot bronze sculpture titled WHAT PARTY will be on display at the plaza through the end of the year.
“Our streetscapes and public spaces through collaboration are more important now than ever,” said Aby Rosen, founder and CEO of RFR. “It is imperative for NYC to resume its leadership as the world’s business and cultural center.”
Neither KAWS nor the Seagram Building Plaza under RFR’s ownership are strangers to public art installations. For his latest work, KAWS recasts one of his earliest characters, CHUM, in a new stance. Initially shown running or standing with pride, CHUM now slouches as if exhaling from a long sigh.
The installation was made possible through Skarstedt Gallery, support of the artist and RFR.
