Hippo Ballerina

Hippo Ballerina at Grand Central

I was first introduced to Hippo Ballerina when she took up residence for a few months at Dante Park outside Lincoln Center as a public art installation in 2017. Imagine my surprise when I was walking past Grand Central on my way home, and saw her visiting Pershing Square Plaza outside Grand Central in May 2022!

Created by Bjorn Okholm Skaarup, she’s now accompanied by “Hippo Ballerina, pirouette” and “Rhino Harlequin, pirouette” to keep her company. If her outfit looks familiar, it was inspired by the sculpture ‘Little Dancer Aged Fourteen’ by Edgar Degas.
