EXHIBITION: EYE ON WALL STREET
AT HISTORIC FEDERAL HALL 26 WALL STREET
OCTOBER 1 - OCTOBER 30, 2009
RECEPTION FOR THE ARTISTS OCTOBER 8, 6-8 PM
We are pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, "Eye On Wall Street", which will be presented at New York's historic Federal Hall, located at the intersection of Wall and Broad St., from Oct. 1 - Oct. 30. This exhibit marks the return of contemporary fine arts to Federal Hall for the first time since its re-opening in Fall 2006. The exhibit is organized under the auspices of the Seaport District Cultural Association( SDCA), and is curated by Jim Wintner, SDCA co-founder and former director of PhotoGraphic Gallery in New York's Seaport Historic District.
Featured are the Financial District photographs of Arthur Lavine, shot in 1969, and a series of 3 time lapse videos created specifically for this site by Bill Dolson in 2006. Complementing the photos and video will be a selection of paintings by a diverse group of contemporary artists who have made the Wall Street District and Lower Manhattan the subject of their work.
Arthur Lavine managed Chase Bank's in-house photo department for 22 years. Our exhibition title derives from an exhibit of the same name shown in 1969 on the plaza level of One Chase Manhattan Plaza. The exhibit comprised a larger number of photos of which 18 by Mr. Lavine have been selected for this show at Federal Hall.
The website will be permanently closed shortly, so please retrieve any content you wish to save.
