What is this art thing going on in lower Manhattan?
August 9, 2007 11:02 AM   Subscribe

What is happening in Foley Square, Manhattan (the asphalt "park" near the courthouses)? First, there were lots of small brightly-colored rabbits.

Then they were gone and there was an enormous pink rabbit. Then that was gone, and there was something described by a friend as "a Grimace head emerging from the underworld." And there is filming.

Can anyone identify this project?

Were they Playdough bunnies? A Bravia ad was being filmed.

Is it the start of a progressive art installation ala The Royal de Luxe Parade in Nantes two summers ago and London last year? Might it be a "teaser" campaign for a film, television show?

Looks like iconomy may have nailed it!

It's in keeping with the Bravia Bouncy Balls and Paint television advertisements.

That was fast. Yes, those are the bunnies in question. When I saw the pink one, I was hoping it was a public art installation and would be around for awhile. (Bad public art is a frequent sight in Foley Square.) A giant pink bunny makes me smile.
