Sky Mirror, an innovative, monumental sculpture made of polished stainless steel designed by internationally renowned artist Anish Kapoor, will be displayed Tuesday, September 19 through Friday, October 27, 2006 at Rockefeller Center at the entrance to the Channel Gardens located between 49th & 50th Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues. The exhibition will be the first New York public art display for the artist whose recent success with the large-scale sculpture, Cloud Gate in Chicago’s Millennium Park, has begun to make him a household name. The breathtaking 35-foot-diameter, 23-ton circular mirror will stand nearly three stories high and offer a dazzling experience of light and architecture. The sculpture will be installed on a platform a few feet above street level. Angled upward, its concave side will face 30 Rockefeller Plaza, reflecting an upside-down portrait of this elegant and iconic New York City skyscraper and the shifting sky around it. Presented by Tumi, organized by the Public Art Fund and hosted by Tishman Speyer, co-owners of Rockefeller Center, Sky Mirror will be on view, free and open to the public.
