‘Oy’ Sculpture Hits Brooklyn

An art installation that shows off a beloved Yiddish phrase is the talk of the town in New York.

The sculpture, called “Yo/Oy,” was installed Monday below the Brooklyn Bridge. It was designed by artist Deborah Kass and commissioned by Two Trees Management Company.

The artist explained to the New York Times this week that it was her intention that the piece be seen as multi-lingual.

“The fact that this particular work resonates so beautifully in so many languages to so many communities is why I wanted to make it monumental,” she said.

Brooklyn, of course, has a large Jewish community.
