Arts Briefing: "Mr. Pointy will be there. So will two giant balloons and a garden of mushrooms and flowers for visitors to sit on. The colorful attraction, part of which is above, under workers' care in Japan, is the outdoor art exhibition 'Takashi Murakami at Rockefeller Center: Reversed Double Helix,' opening today at Rockefeller Center and continuing through Oct. 12. Mr. Pointy, known in Japanese as Tongari-kun, is a 30-foot-tall Buddha-like sculpture that surveys 30 Rockefeller Plaza from a froglike perch. The balloons, each 30 feet in diameter, will be floating 60 feet above the Rockefeller Center ice rink."
