NEW YORK — Yesterday, even before a large thunderstorm pelted New York City with rain and hail, an onsite Public Art Fund (PAF) staffer noticed that "How I Roll" — a spectacular installation by the Italy-born, Alaska-based artist Paola Pivi that consists of a rotating Piper Seneca suspended at its wingtips on two steel columns — wasn't rolling properly. The work, which has been turning heads at 60th Street and Fifth Avenue since it debuted on June 20, was shut down, and upon closer inspection was determined to need a major tune up.
