Corian® in the Heart of Times Square: A Valentine’s Day Tribute
This Valentine’s Day, millions of New Yorkers and tourists looking for love in the “Big Apple” need look no further than “Valentine to Times Square” -- a new temporary sculpture in the “heart” of Times Square. The sculpture is a 10-foot high, two-ton beating heart, made with DuPont™ Corian®.
“We were overjoyed by the prospect of creating something where we can spread a little love,” said designer Mark Foster Gage. “Valentine to Times Square speaks to our love of Times Square and New York City – frenetic, ever-changing, colorful and always fascinating.”
Computer-driven lasers cut the metal sheathing into a delicate latticework pattern. Inside the heart, shelves of horizontal luminescent acrylic pulse in reds, pinks and purples.
“By using the latest in new materials and tools…the heart itself is a carefully calibrated mix of material and lighting effects,” said designer Marc Clemenceau Bailly. The sculpture is presented as part of a Valentine’s Day in Times Square celebration sponsored by jewelry retailer Zales.
Promoted by the Times Square Alliance, the sculpture will be on display February 13 to 22.
