Lariat Seat Loops - James Garvey

James Garvey is an artist and a blacksmith. He created fourteen sculptural lariat seat loops for the 33rd Street station of the New York Subway system. Inspired by a lasso demonstration in a Will Rogers film clip, he created seat rests and hand holds that invite one to touch the thick ropes of bronze. Garvey sees labor intensive, one of a kind products as referencing a traditional work ethic recognized and practiced by many cultures throughout the world.

  2. Good idea, and cold water in the summer as the city heats up!
