Uberorgan has Landed

March 7th, 2005 | Filed under: Architecture | 4 Comments »


The Whitney is currently showing Tim Hawknison‘s works from the past 2 decades covering an entire floor.  The exhibition also extends to The Sculpture Garden at 590 Madison Avenue to accommodate the Uberorgan. His ultra low-tech contraptions are  refreshingly intriguing and playful.  I can’t decide if he’s insane or a genius. He may be both.  Don’t miss it.

    I would like to know if the uberorgan is still being displayed on Madison Ave. at 57th St. I would like to meet some out of town friends there to show them…I saw it while visiting central park for theGates. Thanks for the reply
