One of the largest and most exciting projects in RxArt’s history was completed in May 2006 at the New York University Child Study Center. Ryan McGinness was commissioned by RxArt to create a work for the Child Study Center. Using the Center’s logo and publicity materials, as well as information from a visit to the center and conversations with their staff, McGinness created a large number of unique images, integrating his iconographic themes and color in this site-specific installation. The work begins near an open staircase on the first floor and continues 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.
