Battle of the Brush in Bryant Park

Bryant Park, located about a block East of Times Square in Manhattan, has been home to a several fun contemporary/public art projects recently.  Right now, they’re hosting the “Battle of the Brush.”  Which happens to include alumni of the Beautiful/Decay Studio Visits: Alison Blickle and Tom Sanford.   It’s based around the idea of a civil war reenactment, except instead of the North and South, it’s between abstraction and figuration.  Bryant Park was a campground for soldiers during the Civil War, so that’s where the whole Civil War thing comes in.  Personally, I just like the paintings…  It’s coming down this Wednesday, Feb 2nd, so get over there asap.   The show was curated by Corporate Art Solutions.
