The NYCB Art Series 2017 did not disappoint in color or scale. It was a wonderful night at the ballet in early February! Try not to miss the free, open hours for the general public to view the exhibition Saturday, February 18, through Sunday, February 26 at the following times:
Mon-Fri 10 AM – 5 PM
Sat 10 AM – 12 PM
Sun 10 AM – 1 PM
The exhibition Ground Control, organized by Nicholas Baume, Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund, featured outdoor and site-specific works in Collins Park for the Public sector of Art Basel. From November 30th to December 4th the works were produced in collaboration with The Bass Museum of Art and supported by MGM Resorts Arts and Culture. Challenging some of the norms for public sculpture the works invite visitors to engage in innovative ways, as some sculptures shape shift with interaction. Favorites from the exhibition are below!

An incredible exhibition I saw twice within its exhibition run. The fusion of decades of work is a testimony to the relevance and impact the AIDS epidemic has on our society.
We will never forget, you are not forgotten.
