Looking for something to do after the New Year and wanting to save some money?
Check it out: Lehman College Art Gallery’s fascinating, eye-popping Castles in the Sky: Fantasy Architecture in Contemporary Art exhibit will be open from January 2 to January 26, when the exhibition closes. The Art Gallery, which is located on the Lehman campus, is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 04:00 p.m. The gallery is open to the public and admission is free.
Featuring a mix of 30 artists—well-known names and upstarts, some Bronx-based—Castles in the Sky is an entertaining and provocative survey of how artists match their limitless imaginations with the presence and purpose(s) of place. Each work in the exhibit “appeals to the dream that we all have about the perfect home, or the perfect building, or the perfect place we would want to spend time,” said Bartholomew F. Bland, executive director of the Art Gallery and curator of the exhibit.
The catalog for Castles in the Sky: Fantasy Architecture in Contemporary Art, which opened October 13, 2018, has just been published and could be seen here. For more information, visit here.
The event is open to the public with free admission.
