Flash Back Friday! Just over a year ago, we invited visual artist Nick Cave to take up residence for a week in Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall where he presented  the incredible HEARD•NY. Thirty colorful Soundsuit horses were brought to life by sixty Ailey School dancers during this week long event seen by thousands of thrilled visitors. This week, we heard news that Jack Shainman Gallery will open a new space, The School, May 17, 2014 in Kinderhook, NY with a performance and exhibition by Nick Cave…We can’t wait to see it!

One more week! Spring is so close…hang in there people. #TBT Noel Copeland’s faceted glass permanent art project, Leaf of Life, was installed in 2006 at the Nereid Avenue 238th Street subway station on the 2 Line. Hope this gets you all ready for the warmth that’s coming.
