August 14-16, 2009
With the arrival of the official planters and furnishing for the new Broadway Plaza of Times Square, the summer of the candy-colored lawn chairs ends and the urban legend begins for the Lawn Chairs of Times Square. To mark this moment in Times Square history, Brooklyn based artist Jason Peters merged the remaining 80 blue, green and magenta lawn chairs into a swirling sculpture on Broadway between 42nd and 43rd Streets. The sculpture tilted “Now You See It, Now You Don’t” was on display over the weekend of August 14-16, 2009. Jason Peters’ sculptural installations have been seen on Governor Island, Bemis Center, the Mattress Factory and the White Flag Projects.
