BUCKYBALL Lights Up the City!

World-renowned light installation artist Leo Villareal‘s long-awaited BUCKYBALL is currently on view at Madison Square Park! Named one of Time Out New York‘s Critics’ Picks, it was also featured on NY1 and Wall Street Journal’s New York Photos of the Week. Be sure to come by and visit Villareal’s monumental, 30-foot tall LED sculptural installation and see what all the buzz is about!

Presented by Mad. Sq. Art, the contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, Villareal’s BUCKYBALL will animate the park’s natural landscape with 16 million colors and an infinite number of lively light sequences. Viewers are encouraged to recline on the installation’s zero-gravity couches that serve to create a unique, multisensory experience.

BUCKYBALL will be on view daily from dawn until midnight at the Southwest corner of Madison Square Park through Friday, February 1, 2013. Below are several links to some great exhibition coverage. We hope to see you at the park soon!
