New Children's Museum Gallery Features Works by Swoon, Christo, and Haring
This past Friday The New York Times reported on the reopening of The Children’s Museum of the Arts located at 103 Charlton Street in lower Manhattan. The inaugural exhibition, “Make Art (in) Public,” consists, surprisingly, of mostly adult work: sketches, photos, models and actual pieces by artists like Keith Haring, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the Austrian visionary Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Tranqui Yanqui, who makes wearable art from cardboard. One wall features a sea goddess by Swoon; another has “Heart the World,” a mural commissioned from Remed. No doubt this exhibition appeals to children young and old. You can read the article in full on the New York Times website.
