Nohra Haime Gallery - 730 Fifth Avenue, Suite 701 Manhattan

Niki De Saint Phalle on Park Avenue is comprised of nine monumental sculptures made of polyester resin, with mosaics of ceramic, mirror and stained glass, towering as high as 16 feet and as wide as 13 feet. The exhibition features a retrospective of prominent French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle's signature nanas and totems, as well as works from her iconic Black Heroes series. Last exhibited on parkland in 1968 in Central Park’s Conservatory Garden with artist Jean Tinguely (one of Parks’ first public art exhibitions), Saint Phalle’s works are a playful and vibrant addition to the Park Avenue Malls.

This exhibition will coincide with the ten year anniversary commemorating Niki de Saint Phalle’s passing. Sponsored by the Nohra Haime Gallery and the Niki Charitable Art Foundation under the auspices of the Sculpture Committee of the Fund for Park Avenue and the New York City Parks & Recreation’s Public Art Program.

Niki de Saint Phalle on Park Avenue will be on display through November 15, 2012 on the Park Avenue Malls from 52nd – 60th Street.
