From the Bronx Museum:
"The sculptural work of Diana Al-Hadid often refers to boundaries as a way to challenge preconceived notions of how one defines and experiences space. Drawing from an array of art-historical and scientific references, Al-Hadid’s work treads carefully between the imagined and the real, to address the tension between interior and exterior, belonging and alienation, the ruin and the yet-to-be-completed.
The centerpiece of Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter at the Bronx Museum will be the monumental sculpture Nolli’s Orders (2012), which references Giambattista Nolli’s landmark 1748 map of Rome, the first of its kind to show the public spaces of the city. In it, publically accessible buildings are shown as transparent; private structures are rendered as solid. In Nolli’s Orders, Al-Hadid used the same lexicon of voids and solids, transparency and opaqueness, to convey public and private spaces, figure and ground."

What about event parking rates?

Depending on the garage, if a customer enters the garage before even pricing starts, but does not leave until after event pricing is in place, then they would receive the validation discount for the first hour, but pay event pricing for the remaining hours. The parking will still be discounted.

"Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century, a sweeping survey of contemporary art from around the world, celebrates paint’s capacity to weave together images of physical reality, memories, emotions, and the virtual world. The artists in the exhibition dramatically describe the destabilizing effects of such 21st-century forces as globalism, mass migration, radical ideologies, and complex technologies." - Frist Art Museum, Nashville, TN.

For Freedoms is an artist-run initiative founded in 2016 by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman. Their work has been seen on billboards, posters, in the news and at public events, and it addresses fundamental questions about the link between our culture and our politics. For the 2018 midterm elections, the initiative is building the largest creative collaboration in the history of the United States by commissioning artists to take over 50 billboards across all 50 states (and beyond).
The 50 State Initiative is a new phase of programming from September through December 2018 during the lead-up to the midterm elections. Building off of the existing artistic infrastructure in the United States, For Freedoms has developed a network of artists and institutional partners who will produce nationwide public art installations, exhibitions and local community dialogues in order to inject nuanced, artistic thinking into public discourse. Centered around the vital work of artists, the hope is that these exhibitions and related projects will model how arts institutions can become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism.
Here at the Pizzuti Collection, we have joined the movement as a partner along with hundreds of other museums, universities, libraries, nonprofit organizations, galleries, and media companies with a shared goal of empowering everyone across the United States fo feel welcome in civic conversations. Artists practice free speech every day, and art plays an important role in galvanizing us to meet, talk, and share with our fellow inhabitants of this country. It’s time we come together, raise our concerns, and move towards a more representative form of self-governance.

Duke Riley (NOW-ism) epic outdoor work will see over 1500 LED-lit pigeons soar into the skies above the River Thames in collaboration with LIFT.
"In its first international performance since its premiere at New York City’s Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2016, Riley’s world-class airborne installation has been reimagined for London’s historical military location of Thamesmead, paying beautiful homage to some of the First World War’s unsung heroes who played crucial roles delivering messages between distant personnel.
Fly by Night follows in a LIFT lineage of exceptional outdoor productions that bring London to life. From Sky Orchestra which saw hot air balloons broadcast a dawn symphony over the city’s rooftops, to One Extraordinary Day for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad which saw acrobats scaling London landmarks such as City Hall, the Millennium Bridge and the London Eye.
Fly By Night was originally commissioned by New York based public arts non-profit, Creative Time. It is co-presented with Greenwich+Docklands International Festival and part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary and Thamesmead’s 50th anniversary." - LIFT

Come visit during our hours to catch her powerful and playful piece, and the many other fantastic works on view now through August 12.
