From Valentine’s Day to the Lunar New Year, February is a month filled with celebrations, beginning with the Public Art Fund‘s 40th Anniversary celebration. Here are 11 installations and exhibits to enjoy during February in New York City.
Walking into a Nancy Cohen installation is to be immersed in a riotous array of sensations. Texture, color, and light are her elements, her inspiration, the innumerable forms of nature altered by time, but in their imperfections, possessing the spirit and expression of their history.
2. Artist: Nancy Cohen
Gallery: UrbanGlass’s Agnes Varis Art Center.
Exhibition: Hackensack Dreaming.
Dates: Through November 5.
Inspired by the wetlands of the Hackensack River, this site-specific installation weaves together large sheets of hand-made abaca paper with kiln-heated glass recomposed from discarded windows and old bottles found by the artist.
