As we continue to feature artists from our exhibition, ONTIME/Grand Central at 100, we’d like to spotlight artist Jane Greengold and her work, Lost and Found. Greengold’s installation uses 100 years of memorabilia and talismanic items, to evoke the experience of travelers to and from Grand Central over its long history. She creates a fictional narrative of four generations of railroad conductors who supposedly create a personal museum of memories from passengers who never reclaimed lost items. Weaving together objects she imagines were never claimed at the Terminal’s epic Lost & Found, Greengold creates a sort of wunderkammer that contains not only lost items, but also a hand written notesdescribing when and why the item was left behind.

Above: Jane Greengold, Lost and Found, 2013.
