Two Feet of Snow

By Samuel Chamberlain

February 17, 2010

For some, the Feb. 10 snowstorm was an inconvenience. But for Upper West Side artist Gerry Lynas, the blizzard presented a creative opportunity.

Lynas crafted Two Feet of Snow on West 83rd Street, a 5-and-a-half-foot tall representation of a pair of human feet directly in front of his home and studio, at 233 W. 83rd St. and Broadway.

“I got home [that night], and felt that the snow was perfect material,” he said. “It’s seldom that you get that kind of snow that sticks together. Usually it’s just way too powdery.”
