Live From NY: It's LUCY's Deli on 6th - The Happiest Place You'll Ever Shop!

Everything is for sale in this happy place!  Enter one of the most enjoyable markets you will ever shop, especially if you are an original art collector and want a unique buying / shopping experience.  Sponsored by Rockefeller Center's "Art In Focus" initiative and Art Production Fund, Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow has done it again with "Lucy's Delicatessen 6th," an interactive public art project and retail experience at Rockefeller Center, New York City.
Artist Lucy Sparrow
In this sixth installation (luckily, I have been to four), she has outdone herself with her "felt art" in an upscale NYC deli - market with every single item for sale. Yes, every macaroon, brick of cheese, little fishes, a single beer, strawberry, avocado or batch of asparagus.  Oh, and let's not forget about the giant install of bakery items which look good enough to eat, literally.  
You will also engage a large patisserie, meat, seafood and cheese counter with anything and everything you would buy at your local deli, and more.  Prices range from $5 to around $50 which is a bargain for original art collectors, especially since each item is unique, hand made and hand signed.
All photos are by Leanna V. expect for the last two are via Art Net and Dan Bradica (because my photos of the inside part were awful.)
The 30,000 items will go fast so don't sleep on your art / grocery needs. The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m., 7 days a week through October 20, 2019 and located on 6th Avenue & 49th Streets, New York City.
