We have a new outdoor Lightbox exhibition in our Times Square- 42nd Street location!  Artist Vik Muniz created New York City, after George Bellows (Pictures of Magazines 2), in 2011 and now it can be seen at the Crossroads of the World. The large photographed collage is based on Bellow’s iconic painting of Times Square, in the National Gallery collection in Washington DC. By using torn strips of magazine pages, Muniz’ collage technique is painterly as color is layered to give texture to the work. Having Muniz’ s art in the Times Square lightbox allows the viewer to bridge the past and the present, and experience both the art and the place at the same time.
