AWESOME New Installations by PAFA

November 9, 2011

I had heard about them installing this big paint brush at PAFA (same dude — Claes Oldenburg — who did the big clothes pin at 15th and Market streets) as apart of the new Lensfest plaza on North Broad street, but I don’t remember hearing anything about this crashed plane… LOVE it!!

Looks pretty new too, as they were still doing something to the plane when I was taking these photos.

What do y’all think?

UPDATE: The plane is “Grumman Greenhouse.” He bought the plane on ebay and remade it into the sculpture. [That’s for the info, Wendy!]

Apparently, the plane will be home to some plants as well!!

    Forget the Oldenburg (not that I don’t love his work), the Jordan Griska is far more interesting in my opinion – although, he owes pretty much all of it to Claes in the first place.
