Possible art for the High Line: a hanging train  MAR 27 2012

The group in charge of the High Line in NYC is considering a permanent installation for the park by Jeff Koons. It is called Train.

Koons Train

Yes. Yes, yes, yes. Love it, make it happen. The NY Times has more.

"We've had a crush on the 'Train' for a while now," Mr. Hammond said in a phone interview on Monday. "To me, it looks very industrial and sculptural. The craftsmanship that went into these industrial engines is quite beautiful."

The sculpture, to be constructed of steel and carbon fiber, would weigh several tons. It would also occasionally spin its wheels, blow a horn and emit steam.

In a statement, Mr. Koons said, "The power and the dynamic of the 'Train' represents the ephemeral energy that runs through the city every day."
