Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Navy Blue

Navy Blue Holiday Window

Lord & Taylor Window, December 2016, New York City

A 2016 Christmas window in Lord & Taylor’s Manhattan flagship store (for the moment). Lord & Taylor is the oldest department store in the United States, its first store opening in 1824 in New York City. In 1914, it moved into its Fifth Avenue store, which is well known for its Christmas windows. Declines in the department store retail sector and the rise of  internet shopping resulted in the 2017 sale of the Manhattan main store to a shared economy startup called WeWork. Lord & Taylor will lease about a quarter of the space for a store. The rest will be given over to shared working spaces for gig economy workers and bright young entrepreneurs who need lounges with bars, game tables, and fancy water in order to feel comfortable at work.

Penetrable Structure

“Pentretable” Structure

Variations, using a section of ‘Penetrable’ by Jesús Rafael Soto, on display at Olana, New York

Variations on ‘Penetrable’ by Jesús Rafael Soto, an oversized sculptural work consisting of yellow tubes flowing down from a square steel frame. The 1990 work has been shown around the world. I saw it at Olana, the home of painter Frederic Church, in New York’s Hudson River Valley. Visitors can move in and around the sculpture.
