The Met Life Building as a Fire Hose? Arrechea’s “No Limits” in Flatiron District
By Tod Shapiro, Korvin Vicente and the Flatiron Hot! Editorial Staff
The Flatiron District and NYC Seminar & Conference Center extend a warm welcome to Cuban-born artist Alexandre Arrechea and his first large-scale public art exhibition in New York City, “No Limits”. The exhibition plays on the idea of elastic architecture and embodies New York’s most prominent buildings, including our very own Flatiron Building, as well as the beloved Met Life Building, with eye-catching steel and aluminum sculptures. Mr. Arrechea’s exhibit, consisting of 10 sculptures overall, is being featured prominently on streetscapes throughout Manhattan. Look for the Met Life Building as a fire hose — it graces the Flatiron District in the public plaza immediately adjacent to the Flatiron Building at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue. It’s a show stopper; check it out on your next stroll through the district.
