When the sun’s out, get your buns—and other extremities—out to catch some of these projects across the city
By Ivy Olesen and Victoria Stapley-Brown
Erwin Wurm: Hot Dog Bus (until 26 August), commissioned by Public Art Fund, at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1 & Pier 5
The yummiest project on this list, Erwin Wurm’s Hot Dog Bus, is giving out free hot dogs on Saturdays and Sundays in Brooklyn. The bus itself is a bright yellow, pudgier version of a VW van that looks fittingly like a bun carrying the wieners inside. While you’re at it, the Public Art Fund has two other pieces worth seeing around the city: Anselm Keifer’s massive, winged open book sculpture Uraeus in Manhattan at Rockefeller Center (until 22 July) and Tauba Auerbach’s Flow Separation (1 July-12 May 2019), a glittery camouflaged fireboat that has been brought out of retirement and docked at Hudson River Park’s Pier 66a so visitors can hitch a free ride during the weekend. Not a bad way to spend the dog days of summer.
