The New York City Waterfalls

June 26, 2008 - October 13, 2008

The New York City Waterfalls was a public art installation by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson that consisted of four man-made waterfalls inspired by the (often overlooked) waterways that flow through the city. The work was intended to highlight our relationship to the environment by dramatically juxtaposing beauty of nature against the urban landscape. Funding for the project was provided by a number of private and public sources, coordinated by the Public Art Fund in collaboration with the City of New York
