While we snapped a few shots at last night’s event at the NYDC, our instagram photos are no match for these pro shots from Matthew Carasella Photography. The installations by Jamie Drake FASID, IIDA, Drake Design Associates; Arthur Dunnam & Heather Moore for Jed Johnson Associates; Amy Lau – Amy Lau Design; Amanda Nisbet, Amanda Nisbet Design; and David Rockwell – Rockwell Group were so well done, we just had to show them in all their glory. From film to opera, the 5’ x 4’ scenes drew inspiration from five of Lincoln Center’s disciplines and a Vera List Art Project print. Each were created using furniture from the showrooms of the The New York Design Center.
The Vera List Art Project was launched at Lincoln Center in 1962 by philanthropist and art collector Vera List. A pioneer in the fields of contemporary patronage and art education, Vera created a program that initially commissioned contemporary artists to create posters for Lincoln Center’s events. This initiative took the art out of Lincoln Center and into the streets, where it could be appreciated by the general public. The exhibit in the 1stdibs at NYDC gallery will feature limited-edition prints by contemporary artists ranging from iconic figures such as Chuck Close to emerging artists Matthew Brannon and Jill Moser. Other artists in the exhibition include William Kentridge, Guillermo Kuitca, Philip Taaffe, Dan Christensen, and Terry Winters. All limited-edition prints will be on exhibit the entire month of March and will be available for purchase. Proceeds support Lincoln Center’s innovative cultural programming.
