Calligraphic Lines, Shapes, Symbols @ Brookfield Place: through April 29

Brookfield

On Love: the Art of Line, Shapes & Symbols @ Brookfield Place
April 17 – April 29, 2018
Winter Garden at Brookfield Place, 230 Vesey Street

Four extraordinary artists will create large-scale calligraphic paintings on these windows around the poetic theme of love. The artists from Iran, Japan, India, and the United States will use words, letters, shapes and symbols from their respective languages and alphabets to explore the linguistic and artistic connections to calligraphy. Over two weeks the artists will produce a magnificent temporary art installation, encouraging the public to watch as it’s being crafted.

After one artist finishes, the next artist will begin. At the end of the second week, the windows will be transformed into works of art, and will display the beauty of love through words, letters, art, and symbols.
