Lucy Sparrow is a felt artist, or as she likes to call herself, a “Feltist.” You might remember that in 2017, she packed a NYC bodega full of her faux products in felt and that last year in Los Angeles, she opened the Sparrow Mart Supermarket at the Standard Hotel. Well, she’s back! Her latest all-felt venture is a pop-up delicatessen in Rockefeller Center. The British artist created over 30,000 soft sculptures for this Delicatessen on 6th.
This sixth installation in her felt shop series is a New York City upscale deli, with every single one of the items, from cheese to fish, chocolate to fruit handmade out of felt. All items in the fine food shop is available for purchase. This installation is part of the ‘Art in Focus’ public art program at Rockefeller Center presented in partnership with the non-profit Art Production Fund. Open 11am – 8pm, 7 days a week, October 1 – 20, 2019.

You’ve only got one set of teeth, and every hygienist will tell you the same thing: A good, solid toothbrush and a strict cleaning regimen will do a lot more in the long term than any session in the dentist’s chair. It’ll be a lot cheaper too, even if you purchase one of the high-end […]
