Oh, how we love the sculptures of Gillie and Marc, who have been delighting and entertaining New Yorkers for years with their whimsical bronze wonders, and timely and thoughtful messages. Now, with King Nyani coming to Hudson Yards, we thought it a great time to look back in our archives for a few more Gillie and Marc creations.
The Last Three, a 17-foot tall sculpture of three Northern White Rhinos created by the artists Gillie and Marc, arrived on the Astor Place Plaza on March 15, 2018, bringing awareness to the plight and near extinction of this hunted species. Since the installation’s arrival, we have mourned the loss of Sudan, the only living male of the three in the sculpture.
This temporary art installation comes to a close, and will leave Astor Place on June 12th for Forest City New York’s MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn, with the first public viewing on Wednesday, June 13th at 6pm. What can you do to help raise awareness? Click here.
