Top pieces of artwork in NYC: Balto, Prometheus, Atlas, Wall Street Bull and The Statue Of Liberty are my favorite sculptures. Are you going to visit New York? Don’t miss these pieces of artwork! Beautiful sculptures in the streets, parks and islands of NYC!
Balto by American artist Frederick Roth honors the most famous dog in the world! The statue sits on a natural rock along one of the main paths in Central Park and Balto himself was present when the statue was unveiled in 1925. Sometimes reality and legend mix! Because Balto was a hero! The dog led his team on the final leg of the 1925 serum run to Nome, in which diphtheria antitoxin was transported from Anchorage, Alaska, to Nenana, Alaska, to combat an outbreak of the disease.
Prometheus by artist Paul Manship is an elegant bronze sculpture located in a fountain right behind the skating rink in Central Park in New York City. It was made in 1933 and is an icon of the city now. Did you know that Prometheus defied the gods and decided to help humans? No doubt, Prometheus is a symbol of New York!
Wall Street Bull by Italian-American artist Arturo Di Modica is 16 foot long bronze sculpture of a charging bull that is located at the northern end of Bowling Green Park in Lower Manhattan near Wall Street. It was finished in 1989.
Atlas by American artist and sculptor Lee Lawrie is located right in front of Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan. It was made in 1937. In Greek mythology was the primordial Titan who held up the sky. He is also the titan of astronomy and navigation. Atlas stood at the ends of the earth towards the west!
And of course, The Statue of Liberty! About 3.2 million people visit the Statue of Liberty every year because it’s the symbol of the liberty.It is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor. It was designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor, built by Gustave Eiffel and dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France.
