Gummer on Broadway
Don Gummer is lighting up Broadwaybut not in the same fashion as his wife, actress Meryl Streep. Gummer has mounted an exhibition of nine aluminum and stainless steel sculptures along the Broadway malls from Columbus Circle to 157th St., his first showing of outdoor public art in New York City.
The exhibition was coordinated by the Broadway Mall Association, NYC Parks and the Morrison Gallery of Kent. Morrison Gallery owner William Morrison has curated and installed numerous outdoor sculpture exhibitions in New York City.
A ribbon-cutting is set for 11 a.m. Friday on Broadway between 71st and 72nd Streets. The exhibit continues through October.
Concurrently Works on Paper will be on view at the Morrison Gallery through June 21st. The show will include watercolor, encaustic, and mixed media pieces, which largely relate to Gummers wooden wall relief sculpture. The opening reception is on Saturday, May 16th from 5 - 7 PM.
