Have you visited our ON TIME/Grand Central at 100 exhibition in the NYT Museum in Grand Central Terminal? Among the 18 wonderful artists, Patrick Jacobs creates a unique microscopic view into the Terminal’s workings, with his fisheye lens that depicts in miniature the grand views from the windows on the Main Concourse. His work, Ledge with Lunette, focuses on a ledge above the main concourse on which a pigeon nest has lodged itself. This fictional scene suggests a whimsical if dubious element in the grand setting of the beaux arts Terminal. Jacobs explores the world around us by borrowing from a mixture of scientific fact, cultural assumptions, wishful thinking or even magic. Stop by the exhibition today and see this enchanting piece of artwork!
