New York City never ceases to offer vast amounts of extraordinary art, and for those who enjoy checking out a new piece over a glass of wine or cocktail, we have a very exciting opportunity with the Rockefeller Plaza debut of a Jeff Koons sculpture. After traveling around the world being exhibited in various locations, Koons’ “Split-Rocker” has been installed at the center of Rockefeller Center.
The unique piece of contemporary art brings a pop of bold color into the urban landscape. The monumental half dinosaur-half rocking horse is made up of over 50,000 flowers. Known for his fascination with contrast and the in-between, Koons emphasizes the manmade efforts to achieve such a piece, while the results alternatively, being dependent entirely on nature. Being that the sculpture is over 37 feet in height, the wine bar makes the perfect place to observe the piece. The terrace offers a great view of the sculpture, so enjoy the beauty of the piece over a drink.
