2005_11_tomotterness2.jpgWith his new Humpty Dumpty balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the NY Times has three great video pieces with sculptor Tom Otterness. One is naturally about having a balloon in the parade, and another is about his themes as an artist. But the best one is about his wonderful subway installations at the West 14th Street A/C/E and L station: Otterness discusses the statue that's in the stairwell (see the screengrab at left) being touched by straphanders for good luck.

Gothamist loved Otterness' installations along Broadway last year. All we can say is "More public art!"
