Heard NY – Colorful Horses Take Over Grand Central

If your daily commute involves a stop at Grand Central Station in New York City, it may be worth lingering for a while this week. As part of a the project HEARD•NY, artist Nick Cave will transform Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall with a herd of thirty colorful life-size horses that will peacefully “graze” and periodically break into choreographed movement — or “crossings” — accompanied by live music. The project, which is open to the public free of charge, is presented by Creative Time and MTA Arts for Transit as part of a series of events celebrating the centennial of Grand Central.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with The Ailey School, whose students will perform the twice-daily crossings, and with Chicago-based choreographer William Gill, who has worked with the artist to design the dancers’ movements. We are also delighted that harpists Shelley Burgon and Mary Lattimore, and percussionists Robert Levin and Junior Wedderburn will provide musical accompaniment to the crossings.”

HEARD•NY is free and open to the public, through March 31. Daily crossings happen at 11am and 2pm, and tours are given at 3pm.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
