Van Gogh's Ear Rockefeller Center Art

I could sit and watch all the tourists pass and stare and comment at this art installation at the entrance of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue in New York City. Funded by Public Art Fund created by Elmgreen and Dragset this depiction of Van Gogh's Ear which is a pool on the side is catching lots of attention. I have heard "Only in New York" comments and also heard and watched people stare at the pool like it is a fascinating painting and studying it's angles. I love it. One can say Van Gogh was insane cutting off his ear and one can also say it is insane to see an upright pool on Fifth Avenue! The Art Installation will be up from April 13, 2016 to June 3, 2016 at Fifth Avenue between 49th & 50th Streets. 

Van Gogh's Ear or an  Upright Pool?
