Installation of Joy Brown's Sculptures on Broadway
During the early morning hours of May 15-16th, workers installed Joy Brown's monumental bronze sculptures along Broadway.
Bringing Joy to Broadway
For the past seven years Joy Brown has been working in Shanghai, several times a year with the support of Purple Roof Atelier, building a series of monumental bronze figures. The sculptures have been shown widely in China. This exhibition on Broadway is their U.S. debut.
The pieces were shipped in a 40' container across the Pacific Ocean through the Panama Canal to New York port, then trucked to the Mariano Brothers' (art movers) workshop in Connecticut. On the late night of installation they rolled into Manhattan on two flat bed trucks with a forklift, flagman and permits! It took 6 hours in the wee hours of the night to maneuver Joy's bronze figures into place, ready to greet New Yorkers in the morning!
We need your help to defray the costs of this exhibition, from shipping to the US and for deinstallation at the end of the year.
