Charging Wall Street Bull Cozy Up in Warm Sweater
Posted on December 29th, 2010 in New York | 1 Comment » |
On Christmas Eve of this year, a street artist by the name of Agata Olek spent the night covering the world’s famous Charging Bull sculpture in Manhattan with a pink and purple sweater. While many New Yorkers were spending Christmas with their friends and families, Olek and her pals were out decorating the charging bull into a giant cuddly bull.
When CNNMoney interview Olek to find out why she would do such a thing, Olek told CNN that she knitted the sweater for the Charging Bull as a Christmas gift to NYC and a tribute to the famous sculptor of the bull, Arturo Di Modica, who placed the bull on Wall Street just before Christmas of 1989. “I wanted to make it for all those people who couldn’t make it to their families and for those people who don’t have coats and don’t have any money,” she said.
The artwork only lasted couple of hours before it was taken down by Bowling Green park staff. Just long enough to keep the bull warm throughout Christmas night.
