Conductor Leonard Bernstein during rehearsal with the Cincinnati Symphony at Carnegie Hall in 1977.
Exhibition Tuesday! Artists Doug & Mike Starn created a permanent artwork at the South Ferry subway station on the 1 line, entitled See it split, see it change. Their monumental artwork comprised of glass and stone mosaic, a glass tile wall and a stainless steel fence reveals images of tree limbs and leaves in silhouette. Adapted from photographic imagery, these depictions reference Manhattan’s Battery Park, which is located directly above the station. The mosaic leaf and map tell the story of New York’s lifeline, as it keeps growing and changing.

Since 2007, Lee Jee Young shoots the invisible. Whereas traditional photography submits extracts of reality to our eyes, the artist offers excerpts from her heart, her memory, or her dreams. Restrained by the inherent limits of the conventional photographic medium, she adds plastic creativity and theatrical performance to it, in order to blow life into her immense needs of expression, and interrogation.
