An altogether-too-brief trip back to NYC afforded me a few opportunities to see public art I hadn’t before, including this set of 174 bronze sculptures of birds. A Gathering by Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz is installed all over the Canal Street station’s railings in little groups. It made me do a double take.
Walter Martin was born in Norfolk, VA and Paloma Muñoz in Madrid, Spain, and they are frequent collaborators. Right now, their work can also be seen in The Art of Caring: A look at Life through Photography at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
