Seeing as the weather lately in NYC is becoming far more tolerable for outdoor excursions, I made a trip to the Sculpture Center in Long Island City for an art break. On view(only till March 25th) is work from Monica Bonvicini. The piece outside in the courtyard is my favorite for two reasons beyond it’s artistic expression. First it’s shiny and I like shiny things, second it’s an interesting example of environmental signage that creats a lot of impact.  The text is cut out of a mirrored surface that reflects the environment and changes as you move around it. Also the large size brings it up to a sculptural scale. It’s a simple piece but sometimes you can’t beat a back-to-basics approach.
