About the Exhibition
Life Underground by Tom Otterness (b.1952, Wichita, KS) will spend one year at Doris C. Freedman Plaza before it makes its permanent home in one of the most familiar spots to New Yorkers, the NYC subway system. As you cross Fifth Avenue heading towards the park, you may feel as if you have entered Alice’s Wonderland. A bronze alligator with jaws clamped around Mr. Moneybags drags the figure underground, as two miniature police men nearby sweep up a pile of loose change. With eight sculptures in total, Tom Otterness’s work creates the image of another world.
