Brooklyn’s iconic OY YO sculpture found a new home Monday on a grassy stretch on the Williamsburg waterfront, an anonymous tipster let us know.
The bright yellow art work by Brooklyn-based artist Deborah Kass was originally commissioned by Two Trees and installed in Brooklyn Bridge Park in November of 2015 to August of 2016.
Referencing Ed Ruscha’s word paintings, the sculpture exclaims in Yiddish on one side and says “I am” in Spanish on the other.
It now sits between the end of North 6th Street and the pier, in what is now called The Edge Park, next to three buildings developed by Douglaston Development, including the Edge condos. The last of these, Level, is set to launch leasing any day now.
