The new public art installation at Rockefeller Center is up: Walking To The Sky, by Jonathan Borofsky, features a 100 foot metal pole at an angle, with different kinds of people braving the climb. There are also sculptures of onlookers at the base, much like actual pedestrians stopping to inspect the sculpture. The skyscrapers that encircle Rockefeller Center make seeing this sculpture all the more dazzling and whimsical. More information from Rockefeller Center, and this sculpture was organized by the Public Art Fund. whatisee also took a look at the installation.

Some other great art outside: Andy Goldworthy's huts on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum [photos from rion]. And last year's fall installation at Rockefeller Center - Takashi Murakami's Mr. Pointy.
