Next Stop Atlantic preview at Grand Central Station
Weeks 297, 2008 30x45 chromogenic print edition of 5 in two sizes
I am pleased to announce that two images from my upcoming New York solo show "Next Stop Atlantic" will be on display at Grand Central Station, courtesy of The Metropolitan Transit Authority in conjunction with Earth Day, April 22nd. Please stop by April 19th until April 23rd for a preview of the show opening this September at Front room gallery. These images are from the artificial reef project of the MTA to form sanctuaries for marine life by using former subway cars deep in the Atlantic ocean to form steel condos for fish! You can read a story from 2008 about the project in the New York Times here. You can also see a documentary on how they look underwater here. I am really honored that they are on display at Grand Central Station!
Monday, April 19 to Saturday, April 24th from 10AM to 7PM Please note the MTA booth will not be open Saturday April 24th
