A mock-up of OY/YO outside the Cantor

Major new acquisition announces Cantor’s new direction


OY/YO, by New York–based artist Deborah Kass, will sit on the plaza in front of the Cantor’s storied colonnade, beckoning visitors with its bright-yellow text. Created by the artist to reference both the Yiddish word oy and the interjection yo (which also means “I” in Spanish), the contemporary piece is a conversation starter that’s open to interpretation.
