Thanks to Gerardo Gomez-Martinez (aka Hacer) The public spaces on Broadway in New York’s Garment District are now an origami-style animal zoo. The Mexican-American artist installed a series of powder-coated steel sculptures as part of Transformations. Commissioned by The Garment District Alliance, the project consists of seven creatures of different sizes, including a yellow dog, a magenta elephant, a green bear cub, and two turquoise rabbits and coyotes, one of which extends 4 m from nose to tail.
If you’re in Manhattan, stop by the squares between 36th and 39th Streets before November 23 to see the bold animals in person. (Thank you Laura!)
