Sneak Peek:  New Cutting-Edge Exhibit in Flatiron Prow – Lihan’s “Constructing Manhattan from the Razor’s Edge”!

The ever-popular and enticing Flatiron Prow exhibit space–in this case, literally “cutting-edge”–looks like it’s preparing a new exhibit, and I caught some of the set-up work as I was heading to work this morning. The ever-creative and peripatetic folks at Cheryl McGinnis Gallery that curate this wonderful public exhibition space at one of our most well-known locations, continue to catch our attention with displays of vastly different materials, but with always-fascinating insights about our city and environment. Indeed, the exhibit, entitled “Constructing Manhattan from the Razor’s Edge”, by Christina Lihan, consists of a series of stark-white paper cut-outs hanging diorama-style in striking, hard-angled and recognizable shapes, representing many of NYC’s memorable buildings – including of course, our Flatiron landmarks. It appears to be nearing completion, creating a simulated mini-skyline! This intriguing exhibit will no doubt be completed in the coming days. Check back here for further info, or take a peek as you walk past the corner of 23rd Street and 5th Avenue as you pass the prow. Or, take a quick look at these Flatiron Hot! News pics and video clips to whet your appetite for cutting-edge sculpture.
