Visitors will be encouraged to add personal items to the "cute culture" art installation
Sebastian Masuda, a Japanese artist and ambassador of “kawaii culture”, is bringing his TIME AFTER TIME CAPSULE art installation project to New York City with a 9 foot tall, hollow sculpture of Sanrio's popular Hello Kitty character.
Visitors will be encouraged to add personal items to fill up the capsule. A similar sculpture has already been installed in Miami Beach, and another will be placed in Amsterdam. All of the time capsules will be gathered together in Tokyo in 2020 in anticipation of the Olympic games.
The giant Hello Kitty capsule will be installed at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, East 47th Street, New York, NY10017 (2nd Avenue) beginning on April 29 and concluding sometime in September, 2015.
