Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow, known for her covetable felt art pieces and shops, returned to New York City with Lucy Sparrow’s Delicatessen on 6th.
This interactive public art project and retail experience at Rockefeller Center will be open for business until October 20th.
This is Lucy’s sixth installation in her felt shop series. This time a New York City upscale deli, with every single one of the items, from cheese to fish, chocolate to fruit handmade out of felt.
All items in the fine food shop is available for purchase. This installation is part of the ‘Art in Focus’ public art program at Rockefeller Center presented in partnership with the non-profit Art Production Fund.
Lucy’s last installation 8 ‘Till Late closed 9 days early because all 9,000 stuffed goods disappeared off the shelves.
