Bring Family & Friends to Watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade Float by from a Private Perch at Tatzu Nishi: Discovering Columbus at Columbus Circle

View all 4 images

Lot_page
Experience New York's iconic Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday as never before—from inside Public Art Fund's groundbreaking new art exhibition, Tatzu Nishi: Discovering Columbus. From an outdoor landing in Columbus Circle, up to 40 guests can watch as the floats make their way down Central Park West toward you. And when they turn east onto Central Park South, enjoy the parade from the comfort of the fully furnished, 800+ square foot living room, six stories above the street.

This experiential artwork, conceived by the artist Tatzu Nishi places the statue of Columbus in the middle of a contemporary living, recontextualizing the historical monument and transforming it into a contemporary work of art. Columbus Circle is one of the City’s best-known landmarks. It is one of the primary entry points to Central Park and the point from which all official distances from the City are measured. The Columbus Monument, which stands at its center, has been one of New York’s most iconic statues since its unveiling 1892 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s first voyage to the Americas. Designed by the Italian sculptor Gaetano Russo, the monument culminates with the 13-foot-tall marble figure of Columbus at the column’s crown, around which Nishi’s work centers. Since its opening in September, Discovering Columbus has been seen by more than 65,000 visitors and is regularly viewable by timed ticket only.

Proceeds support Public Art Fund, a private, non-profit organization that brings dynamic contemporary art to a broad audience in New York City by mounting ambitious free exhibitions of international scope and impact that offer the public powerful experiences with art and the urban environment.
