A New Kaws Sculpture Drops in Detroit

Brooklyn street artist KAWS is a favorite here at The Art Gorgeous and he is at it again. The artist has unveiled his latest piece of public art in Detroit. The new sculpture, entitled
Waiting, depicts a parent and child in patina-covered bronze, in a moment where they look like they’re either waiting for a bus or posing for a family photo. 

A project of Detroit art gallery, the Library Street Collective Gallery, the 17-foot tall sculpture stands outside the One Campus Martius tower. Though the artwork has already been vandalized by underground graffiti artists, it was acquired by real estate mogul Dan Gilbert and his wife Jennifer Gilbert, who are building what they call a Detroit Art Collection (and also own artworks by Shepard Fairey).

“It is very important to us that the works we choose for the collection are both approachable and strategically located where everyone can enjoy them,” said Jennifer Gilbert in a statement. “We chose One Campus Martius as the location for ‘Waiting’ because it is in the heart of the action, where the sculpture can become synonymous with downtown’s momentum.”
