Now, starting Friday, March 1st, the Cuban-born artist will be exhibiting 10 massive sculptures along Park Avenue here in NYC. This outdoor exhibit, titled No Limits, embodies some of New York City’s most iconic landmarks in a playfully twisted way. These architecturally elastic works include: the Chrysler Building, Citicorp Center, Empire State, the Flatiron, Helmsley Building, MetLife, Metropolitan Life Tower, Seagram’s, Sherry Netherland and US Courthouse. The rolling, winding and spinning 20-ft tall sculptures will be placed along the Park Avenue mall from 53rd to 67th Streets. Plus, you can join the artist for a walking tour on Saturday, March 2nd, from 4 to 5:30, meeting at the corner of 54th St. But even if you can’t make the tour, fear not, No Limits will be up through June 9th.

    I think it’s great that someone has the chance to do this. Only in New York, right? I had a lot of fun walking up and down Park Avenue looking at these buildings, so I thank Mr. Arrechea for doing this, and whoever paid for it. ( Hopefully, not us taxpayers!)
