An Artist’s Perspective On Life’s Future In A Post-Pandemic World

An Artist’s Perspective On Life’s Future In A Post-Pandemic World

Walking through the corridors of The Oculus almost feels like exploring a modern art museum: the bright, spacious halls guide you around in a way that is meditative and calming, regardless of crowds. 

Until last month, the only thing missing from the museum experience were actual fine art pieces to admire. Enter: NYC Culture Club, a month-long art project launched by brothers Parker and Clayton Calvert in collaboration with Westfield World Trade Center. More than a dozen fine artists, sculpturists and photographers contributed work around the theme of “Resurgence” — a fitting topic, given how New York and the rest of the world is adjusting to living life alongside Covid for the immediate future. 

The free, contact-less exhibit includes QR codes beside each artwork to enable visitor to learn more about the artist. Some art may be available for purchase, where 100% of the proceeds go directly to the artist (a wonderful way to support future creative projects like this). 

The free exhibit is located on the C1 Balcony level of The Oculus and open 11 a.m.  to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. It runs through July 25.
