The Rubber Duck -- a giant inflatable sculpture by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman that enchanted Pittsburgh last autumn -- resurfaced in Norfolk, Va., yesterday.
The duck was brought to Norfolk's waterfront by the Chrysler Museum of Art to commemorate its renovation. The artwork, which attracted more than 1 million visitors to Point State Park as part of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's International Festival of Firsts, will remain in the Hague Inlet, in front of the Chrysler Museum, through May 26.
The Cultural Trust, which owns the artwork, announced in March that the duck would be traveling to Norfolk. Mr. Hofman chooses the venues in which his work will appear. This is the Rubber Duck's first U.S. exhibit since Pittsburgh.
