In 2006, Ryan McGuinness was commissioned by RxART to create a work for the Child Study Center at New York University. One of our earliest projects, McGuinness used the Center’s logo and publicity materials, as well as information from a visit to the center and conversations with their staff, to create a large number of unique images, integrating his iconographic themes and color in this site-specific installation. The work, which has been deinstalled, began near an open staircase on the first floor and continued up the stairwell to the second floor, spilling out onto adjacent walls.
Works by Will Cotton, Billy Copley and John Margolies are installed in the “All Purpose Room” and two Dominik Lejman daylight video installations of Jellyfish animate a waiting area on the lower level.
This installation was made possible by a generous grant from The Dorthea L. Leonhardt Foundation in honor of Brooke Garber Neidich and Family.
