Our exhibition ONTIME/Grand Central at 100 opens tomorrow! On view at the New York Transit Museum Gallery at Grand Central, the show features contemporary artwork in honor of the centennial of Grand Central Terminal. Artists interpreted the theme of Time and the people who move and live through it, who are connected to the past and present thought experience in this iconic place. The exhibition opens with two romantic images from 1947 by noted mid-century photographer Paul Himmel, who shot images for the Herald Tribune, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Himmel pins down the timelessness of the solitary figure in his poetic black and white image, isolation a single figure in the whirl of the Grand Central crowd. The show opens March 6th and runs until July 7.
