ST Nice to See You

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 6 June 2017 in Art & Design.

Happy ST Nice to See You, a life-scale sculpture of a window washer, was cast by Seward Johnson in 2008.
This sculpture is so realistic that only the bronze-colored "skin" gives it away. The coveralls, hat, shoes, and window-squeegee are painted in appropriate colors. Of course, it is positioned exactly so that he appears to be washing the Art building window. It fools many into thinking he is real.
I value your comments

That is truly realistic. I had to look several times. You're right. The bronze skin. But then again, many people rub on fake tan, and end up looking bronze.

Cleaning the windows is unpleasant. There will always be riots that somebody then points out.
