MoMA P.S. 1 Afternoon Sunlight


MoMA P.S. 1 Afternoon Sunlight
Oil on panel
6x6 inches

Today is dreary, gray and rainy so I'm posting a bright painting - a small study of sunlight hitting the side of an old building in Long Island City, MoMA P.S. 1. This former school - the first public school in Queens, NY - became an art institution in the 1970's. The museum is currently a venue for MoMA's new and cutting edge exhibitions and the former classrooms have become artists studios for international artists. I pass by this building daily and in the late afternoon the sunlight hits the old red brick creating a glowing, warm and beautiful building facade.
