In Pictures: BUCKYBALL

BUCKYBALL is lighting up and enlivening Madison Square Park and the Flatiron District this winter – just in time for the holiday season!

Commissioned by Mad. Sq. Art, the free contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, BUCKYBALL was created by world-renowned light installation artist Leo Villareal. Villareal’s monumental, 30-foot tall sculptural installation is capable of displaying 16 million distinct colors that form an endless number of light sequences of varied shades, opacity, speed, and scale. The installation never looks the same twice, and varies depending on your position from the work and the time of day. Visitors are also encouraged to recline on zero-gravity couches located around the sculpture in order to create unique, multisensory experiences.
