Sink or Swim May 7, 2023

I was walking on Park Avenue last Tuesday headed to the AKC’s Museum of the Dog when I came upon the strikingly realistic work of  artist Carole A. Feuerman. A series of nine of her hyper-realistic swimmer sculptures are on display along Park Avenue from 34th Street to 38th Street in Manhattan. Feuerman is credited as being one of the founding members of the hyper-realistic art movement which started in the 1970s. Today, she is the only female artist who creates hyper-realistic painted outdoor sculptures. Bright vibrant colors make the sculpture pop against the streetscape and skyline while metallic and reflective accents make them glisten in the sun. By the way, the Dog museum is closed on Tuesdays.
