Tom Otterness on Broadway, an exhibition of 25 bronze sculptures by New York sculptor Tom Otterness, stretches from Columbus Circle to Washington Heights. Originally scheduled to be on view from September 20 through November 22, 2004, Tom Otterness on Broadway will now be up through March 18, 2005 due to popular demand.*

This exhibit represents the first large display of temporary public art on the Broadway Malls, the landscaped medians on Broadway from 60th to 168th Street.

Considered one of the premier public artists working in the United States , Tom Otterness has exhibited widely and completed commissions in North America and abroad. His stylized bronze figures combine into sculptural ensembles that explore the range of human experience, from grand ambition to common foibles, plucking imagery and themes from popular culture and subtly transforming them into humorous commentary.

Tom Otterness on Broadway is a collaboration of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, The Broadway Mall Association, Marlborough Gallery and Tom Otterness Studio.

* All works in the exhibition will continue to be on view through March 18, with the exception of See No Evil at 60th Street, which will be removed by mid-January so that construction can move ahead at Columbus Circle.
