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).
