NEW YORK (AP) — Furnishings that were a part of a popular New York City art installation that encircled a Christopher Columbus statue are now available for sale.

"Discovering Columbus" by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi ran for 10 weeks and was seen by over 100,000 people last fall.

Visitors climbed six flights of stairs for an up-close view of the 13-foot-high Columbus statue sitting atop a 60-foot granite column.

The Public Art Fund said Tuesday the sale includes about 32 pieces. They include a velvet sectional couch for $1,950 and a tiny metal horse sculpture for $115. There's also a 55-inch LED TV, a media console, lamps and coffee tables, all at below retail value.

They're being offered on a first-come, first-serve basis at www.artspace.com .

All proceeds will benefit future Public Art Fund exhibitions.
