KAWS & EFFECT: A larger than life statue by artist KAWS has popped up at Rockefeller Center. The 18-foot tall bronze statue called SHARE features two iconic figures, "COMPANION" and "BFF," and will be on display in the Center Plaza through October. The statue is being shown in conjunction with an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, called KAWS: WHAT PARTY.
