Tauba Auerbach’s dazzled design for Fireboat John J. Harvey has made a huge splash across New York Harbor this past month! Because of its overwhelming popularity Public Art Fund has added six additional Flow Separation rides this fall.
Flow Separation is a commission by New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach (b. 1981, San Francisco, California), which transforms the historic Fireboat John J. Harvey into a contemporary “dazzle ship.”
Throughout the summer and fall, the dazzled fireboat will be anchored at docks around New York Harbor and on weekends will offer free, timed trips for the public, continuing John J. Harvey’s 18-year tradition since her retirement as a working fireboat.
Until August 12, Flow Separation will be docked at Pier 6 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. All trips during this time will depart and return to Pier 6. From August 13 to October 7, Flow Separation will be docked at Hudson River Park’s Pier 25. All trips during this time will depart and return to Pier 25.
