Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor Autumn Events 2016
Staten Island SEEN: Part I closes on September 25
Staten Island SEEN traces this borough’s unique history and changing landscape from the 17th century to the present. These works are made in a broad range of styles and materials, from ink drawing to anaglyph 3-D video. In the past, artists were attracted to Staten Island for its varied landscape: The shoreline, inland hills, ponds, valleys, waterways, and forests all provided inspiration. Contemporary artists depict these natural features as well as the way we live today, including parking lots, strip malls, tract houses, and other aspects of our suburban landscape. Check out Staten Island SEEN before it’s too late – and get 10% off on the exhibition catalog.
