NEW YORK—By day, Madison Square Park is a pleasant oasis. At night, an illuminated sphere has turned the public space into a curiosity more fascinating than the park’s popular Shake Shack. Every evening, “Buckyball, a new site-specific art installation by Leo Villareal, offers visitors an electric light theater experience complete with a ring of wood loungers on which to lay back, relax and take in the mesmerizing experience.
“Buckyball” is on view from Oct. 25 to Feb. 1, 2013 (update: recently extended to Feb. 15).
