Set designer Robert Israel created 11 whimsical, super-sized sculptures for the Bloomberg Children's Center's entry and soaring multi-level lobby. They include:
-a rhinoceros, with a baby rhino on its back, both built out of block-like cubes, standing over 20-feet tall at the entrance.
-a 22-foot high brightly colored ostrich, which looks like a figure in a snow globe when seen from the outside through Spencer Finch’s fritted glass
-a family of puffer fish swimming above the broad stairway that connects the ground floor and the main level lobbies.
-a flying cow with a nine-foot wingspan, heading towards a ring of the 28 phases of the moon
