New York City Center, a decorative marvel

New York City Center is a Moorish Revival eye-catcher located on 55th Street in Manhattan. The decorative flourishes both on the exterior and interior of the performing arts space are quite unique and beautiful. 

Having been fortunate enough to have attended several wonderful music and theatrical productions in this massive space I'm looking forward to the day when this venue, like so many other performing arts spaces, will once again be open to the public and putting on the great shows they are known for.

This small study does not do justice to the magnificent and detailed surfaces and I hope one day to create a larger painting capturing more of the detail up close.
