"John Ahearn public art"

A native of Binghamton, New York, noted sculptor John Ahearn gained recognition in the 80’s for his remarkably life-like, colorful casts of residents of the South Bronx — the community in which he chose to live and work.  We recently sighted two of his astonishing installations — fashioned in collaboration with Rigoberto Torres — on the exterior walls of two South Bronx buildings. A homage to the community, these pieces transform both the buildings and their surrounding landscape into a celebration of local life. More after the jump!
