The luxury West side rental development, Sky recently unveiled that the artwork of the famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be on permanent display in the lobby of the  71-story building as well as in the center of the carefully designed motor court.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have such an iconic and important work of art by one of the world’s greatest living artists permanently residing in front of Sky. I hope it will become a cherished emblem of culture in the city for generations to come,” said Joseph Moinian, CEO of The Moinian Group, Sky’s developer.

In the motor yard, Kusama’s monumental bronze pumpkin will both delight and astonish with its carefully carved out details. Guests who enter into the David-Rockwell designed, award-winning lobby will find two of Kusama’s “Infinite Nets” gracing the already exclusive space.

Kusama’s bronze pumpkins were exhibited in London at Victoria Miro in 2014 for the first time and along with her other artwork, they have also been displayed in several countries. Having her artwork at their luxury rental, Sky keeps adding more style and exclusivity to their already great location between Hell’s Kitchen and Hudson Yards District with stunning views of both the City and Hudson River.
