New York Water Tank Project: Koons, Ruscha, Jay-Z and more

This public art season has already seen New York City land its boldest water tower to date, but next spring the sprawling WaterTank Project will up the ante in a big way, with rooftop tanks around the city becoming canvases for artists as diverse as Jeff KoonsMarilyn MinterE.V. DayCatherine OpieLawrence WeinerEd Ruscha, and Jay-Z.
The project, whose all-star curatorial team includes MoMA PS1’s Neville Wakefield and the Pinault Collection’s Alison Gingeras, is being overseen by the non-profit Word Above the Street. The project, which will also include designs by public school students, will unfold across all five borough over the course of 12 weeks next spring.
