New York, September 2008

“Monumental heads by Nebraska-based Jun Kaneko delight passersbys from the traffic medians at 52nd, 53rd and 54th Streets on Park Avenue. The three heads depict an Asian man with a calm expression—the artist, or perhaps the face of Buddha. Kaneko created these richly glazed ceramic works in one of his signature walk-in ‘beehive kilns.’ The project was recommended by the Fund for Park Avenue Sculpture Committee, with support from Gebert Contemporary and the Grand Central Partnership.” (Jun Kaneko on Park Avenue, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation)
