DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — German artist Katharina Grosse's latest sculpture entitled "Just Two of Us," will go on display in the MetroTech Commons Plaza later this month, Public Art Fund announced.

Opening on Oct. 27, the artist's first outdoor installation in New York City includes eighteen fiberglass-coated forms spray painted in striking colors.

“Katharina Grosse has a reputation internationally for expanding the limits of painting, incorporating sculptures and architecture to expose a new or unexpected dimension of a familiar site,” said Andria Hickey, Public Art Fund Associate Curator, in a statement. “On the 20th anniversary of our exhibitions at MetroTech Commons, this major new commission will activate the space with vivid bursts of color and a sculptural landscape that weaves among the trees, transforming the plaza.”

The artist visited the site several times in order to plan the size and placement of each of her forms, according to The New York Times.

Public Art Fund partnered with Forest City Ratner Companies to present the vibrant contemporary art installation. It will be on display through Sept. 14, 2014.
