Clown Sleeping While Sitting on a NYC Park Bench Is Actually Part of the Lightness of Being Public Art Installation


If you are in City Hall Park in New York City, you might happen upon a colorful “big-bellied” clown sleeping while sitting on a park bench. It’s a performance piece by New York artist Ugo Rondinone called “Dog Days are Over” created in collaboration with fashion designer Victoria Bartlett. This performance piece, along with many sculptural installations in the area, are part of the public art exhibition “Lightness of Being” presented by Public Art Fund in City Hall Park which runs through December 13.
