and the truth is always in shades of gray

Art, exhibitions, Photography

I  like public art (especially when it incorporates photography) and I really like New York City,  so it’s no wonder that  I love this…  Landscape with Path is a project curated by Joel Sternfeld that brings art to the brand new (and beautiful) High Line. Near West 18th Street Sternfeld, Robert Adams, and Darren Almond will each occupy a large billboard adjacent to the urban garden. This month, Robert Adams 1979 photograph, Nebraska State Highway 2, Box Butte County, was installed. I love the contrast of the bare, desert road leading to vast nothingness, against the lush, artificially constructed modern garden.
