Hippo Ballerina on the Flatiron South Public Plaza

The Flatiron Partnership welcomes Hippo Ballerina to the South Plaza! Weighing 2.5 tons, and cast in bronze and clad in a copper tutu, Hippo Ballerina (who we've affectionately dubbed Henrietta) by Danish artist Bjørn Okholm Skaarup will be on display near 22nd Street and Broadway now through Thanksgiving.

“Standing over 15 feet high, Hippo Ballerina has found a happy home among New York's skyscrapers. Last seen opposite Lincoln Center in 2017, she has now made her way down Broadway, beside the iconic Flatiron Building, facing the Empire State Building. I am delighted when people of all ages interact with the bronze sculpture, as they pass, smiling and even posting photos to #dancewithhippoballerina. I know that Hippo Ballerina will enjoy living downtown!” said the artist, Skaarup. 

Inspired by Degas' Little Dancer Aged Fourteen (Petite danseuse de quatorze ans) and the dancing hippos of Walt Disney's Fantasia, Hippo Ballerina vividly illustrates the artist's ability to reinterpret subjects and themes found in ancient myths, art history, modern animation, and contemporary popular culture in playful ways that engage the viewer.

To welcome Hippo Ballerina to the Flatiron District, and to make the most of the day before NYC public schools open for the fall semester, please join the Flatiron Partnership for some themed programming (including, of course, Hungry Hungry Hippos and a selection of tutus for you to grab an epic pic) on Wednesday, September 4th from 10 am to 2 pm. Click here for more information.  

The installation on the South Plaza is made possible through a partnership with NYC DOT Art & Event Programming who commissions and oversees the installation of temporary public artwork, including the Partnerships' annual holiday installation on the North Plaza; Cavalier Galleries, who for over 30 years has offered an unparalleled selection of fine art at premier exhibition spaces in Greenwich, Nantucket, and New York; and the Flatiron Partnership. 

"Hippo Ballerina brings together the historic and the modern, combining Degas’ Little Dancer with the dancing Hippos of Walt Disney’s Fantasia. In this way, Hippo Ballerina mirrors the Flatiron District of today by bringing together the historic and the modern," states Anna Gillis of Cavalier Galleries. "The Flatiron District is a storied part of New York City which has taken on new and exciting roles as a booming residential and commercial district. We are very happy to call it Hippo Ballerina’s new home!"

Flatiron Summer Series 2019 Recap

The Flatiron Summer Series has come to a close after eight weeks of free programming -- for the community, by the community.  

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership helped New Yorkers and visitors alike make the most of summer with eight fun-filled weeks of free events, which included educational and cultural talks on "Talk Tuesdays", fitness classes for "Wellness Wednesdays," and nostalgic games, kids' workshops, live entertainment, and frozen treats on "Throwback Thursdays". Over the course of the summer, over 2,100 people attended the series.

  • The program kicked-off with a Summer Solstice Sundial in partnership with the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), celebrating the Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 20th participants became a human sundial using the solstice sun and their bodies to tell the time.

  • New this year, "Talk Tuesdays" consisted of educational and cultural talks on topics like female empowerment, thoughtful urban planning, and user experience design. These talks are lead by instructors from neighborhood businesses and institutions, including General Assembly, which has been a program partner since 2012.

  • Fitness enthusiasts enjoyed free yoga, dance, HIIT, and other sweat-inducing workouts on "Wellness Wednesdays". Each session was taught by instructors from local studios. Post-workout, participants quenched their thirst with free lemonade from Argo Tea as well as gift bags with fun goodies from various local businesses. 

  • The Home Depot became a program partner this year, joining The Center for Book Arts, Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop and Playday NYC for fun kids' workshops every Thursday from noon to 2 pm. Nostalgic games could be found for some lunchtime fun. Wonder Photo Shop also provided Instax cameras allowing attendees to take home a memory of the series. In the evening, local musicians & improv troupes offered all-ages entertainment. And for three very special days, Eataly and Shake Shack provided sweet treats for our attendees to enjoy.

Thank you to our partners for a successful program this year! 

And a special thank you to The Home Depot for allowing us to bring even more family fun to the plazas this year!
