Max Neuhaus, Times Square

Max Neuhaus’s “Times Square” sound installation was first installed from 1977 to 1992 beneath a metal vent, and later restored in 2002. Most times the low melodic tones are not heard as they blend into the rumble of Times Square. Recently, the construction blockades on Broadway between 45th and 46th streets, were removed and now visitors can once again her the sonic creation.

Neuhaus experimented with other public art sound pieces i including “A New Work (Underground)” embedded in a sculpture garden grate at the Museum of Modern Art, “Walkthrough” in the Jay Street subway station, and “Round” in Alexander Hamilton US Custom House.
