Charles Long: Pet Sounds

Today I stopped by Madison Square Park located between Madison Avenue and 23rd street to see the interactive art installation "Pet Sounds,"   by California artist Charles Long. The mixed-media sculptures have been hanging out  in the park for more than a month now and they seem well liked by all the passers by.  The scorching heat kept most adults  in the shade today, but the little ones gravitated enthusiastically to the biomorphic forms.  There is a playground in the park if the kids want to start climbing the art.   The installation will grace the park until September 9th, so there is still plenty of time to enjoy the soothing pet sounds and good vibrations these friendly forms emit.
