Tatzu Nishi: Discovering Columbus

For his latest project titled "Discovering Columbus", Japanese artist Tatsu Nishi wrapped the the iconic Christopher Columbus statue located in Columbus Circle in New York, in a six-story-high "living room". The massive Columbus figure perches on a table surrounded by chairs, couch, rug, and flat-screen television, the d├ęcor reflects the artist’s interpretation of contemporary New York style. Tatsu even designed wallpaper inspired by memories of American popular culture. The installation runs through Nov. 18 and is free but requires a pass available at publicartfund.org or inside the Shops at Columbus Circle.
