Olafur Eliasson’s Waterfall project profiled in the New York Times
The economic value of this public art project is obvious but it’s spelled out here directly:
Ms. Harris said she hoped this multiborough project would attract visitors, just as “The Gates” generated an estimated $254 million in economic activity for the city. Hotels are offering special waterfall packages. Tourist agencies are planning bicycle and boat tours. The Circle Line Downtown will be running special waterfall excursions, too, some of them free, with an audio introduction by Mr. Eliasson.
The value to Mr. Eliasson’s market isn’t mentioned.
