Yesterday, Park officials and various other people unveiled a new sculpture in Tompkins Square Park... Meet "Walk Man," which is the work of artist Scott Taylor.
Per DNAinfo, the "seven-foot-tall sculpture represent[s] the walking man, a version of which is seen at street crossings around the world."
As he said to DNAinfo: "Will it get graffitied? Probably," Taylor acknowledged, saying he’d simply paint over any scrawls that appear. "My graffiti is my white paint."
And "Walk Man" is set to be up for the next four months.
