An 8-foot-tall deer has made its way to North Amityville.
That’s after a few stops from Illinois, to Miami and other parts of the U.S., including, most recently, Connecticut.
And no, this is not an abnormal real-life fawn but a piece of artwork from renowned artist Tony Tasset.
Tasset, an American multimedia artist, created “Deer” in 2015 in the Prairie State.
Since then, the structure has traveled the states as an attraction, landing at a Long Island luxury apartment development called Greybarn Amityville on Tuesday.
“This sculpture by Tony Tasset exemplifies the essence of what we routinely incorporate into our properties, both commercial and residential,” said Mitchell Rechler, co-managing partner of Rechler Equity Partners, which operates the Amityville property. “As Tasset said upon the creation of ‘Deer,’ this sculpture represents the highest conceptual ambitions, which we at Rechler Equity strive for with every new and existing project.”
The enlarged deer is displayed at Greybarn’s great lawn, located at 805 Broadway.
“We are excited to share this piece of art with the Greybarn residents and are confident they will enjoy it as much as we do,” said Rechler.
“Deer” will remain there for a year, then it will find its permanent home at the Canoe Place Inn in Hampton Bays.
