It appears KAWS has gifted the Northeast with a Giant Companion for the Holiday Season. First featured during his Hong Kong exhibit, Passing Through (covered), the 16 foot fiberglass sculpture has concluded a long journey to the US by settling down on the snowy lawn of The Aldrich Contemporary Museum, where it joined the rest of the work already on display for the artist’s first museum solo exhibition (covered). A symbolic and triumphant ending, indeed, to a meteoric year from the multi-dimensional Brooklyn-based artist. While the sculpture is already on display for attendees to enjoy, it sounds like there will be an official unveiling, along with a book signing, on Sunday, January 30, 2011.
