Pink sculpture not popular
From PIX 11:
On Wednesday night, it was a packed town hall meeting at MOMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens. The town hall addressed many topics including affordable housing for artists, and also a sculpture slated to go up on Jackson Avenue.
One speaker said, “I think it’s an amazingly interesting piece of art, I think the location should have been discussed a little more in depth before the decision was made.”
According to a spokesperson for city’s Department of Cultural Affairs, the sculpture is slated to go up on Jackson Avenue near 43rd Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, a public art project with a price tag of $515,000 funded by city capital dollars. The sculpture is called “The Sunbather.”
