I Need A Sugar Daddy To Buy Me This

Soft Serve Man
For those of you who don't know, many office buildings in Midtown, and probably all of Manhattan, sponsor public art events and space. For a few months this has meant a huge Hello Kitty on Park Avenue, courtesy of Tom Sachs. Right now, it means that this BE-A-UTIFUL sculpture is also residing on Park Avenue.

During my lunch wanderings yesterday, a friend and I came across Jeremy Davis' Soft Serve. He looks like Buddha, or gluttony personified, or a giant ice cream man, or how I usually feel at the end of the day. All I know is that it made me really hungry for some more Momofuku soft serve. Below the Mr. Davis' story behind his work (sorry for the blurriness, the sign is very low and I'm very tall.)

This is currently at the Park Avenue Atrium, 237 Park Avenue between 45th and 46th Street, as a part of the National Sculpture Society's 76th Annual Awards Exhibition until May 29th.

I need a Suga-Mommma to buy it for me :)

It's so awesome! I love the idea. It's kind similar to why I'm so interesting "The Biggest Loser".

How much is it by the way?

I have no idea how much it is, but it's art and won something so one can assume it is expensive.

Lol - reminds me of Roby the robot that would be great right inside the door of an apartment in place of a doorman - with a robotic voice and everything "welcome to Smith residence.."
