ART NET NEWS – Times Square is getting its first fountain—and it will be surrounded by acrylic nails. The unusual monument is the work of artist Pamela Council, who building their largest ever “Fountains for Black Joy” sculpture in New York City. The monumental structure will measure 18 feet tall and be enclosed within a grotto-like carapace covered in close to 400,000 colorful acrylic finger nails, a key material in the artist’s practice for the last 13 years. “Fountains have this way of working in culture as meeting places, as gathering places, and places where people make wishes, giving people this ebullient sense of hope.”
