Here’s some fine news with which to end the week. The Public Art Fund has extended Tatzu Nishi’s project at Columbus Circle, “Discovering Columbus,” through Dec. 2. The installation, a living room built on scaffolding around the elevated statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle, had been scheduled to close Nov. 18.

Public Art Fund is also making arrangements for people who missed their appointed reservation times because of Hurricane Sandy. From the organization’s statement:

The exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, December 2, and passes will become available at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, November 14 through PublicArtFund.org. Special accommodations are being made for members of the public whose plans to visit were disrupted by Hurricane Sandy and the nor’easter that moved through New York City earlier this week. Individuals with reservations for October 28 – November 3, as well as November 7, who were not able to visit, will be invited by email to register for passes beginning at noon on Tuesday, November 13, 24 hours before passes are released to the general public.

Really, it’s well worth the trip.
