“I think it’s been an amazing journey, to learn another new medium. I did it, actually, with ceramic, and it just opens so many doors, and so many doors in my mind and my creative process.” —Kathy Ruttenberg

New York City really steps up its public art game in the summer. If you live on or go to the Upper West Side of Manhattan, you’ve probably noticed Kathy Ruttenberg’s trippy installation on the Broadway Malls. Here is a look at the process in her – apparently sometimes very cold – studio as she built the sculptures. Edited by Joe Cohen

From the Broadway Mall Association:

Kathy Ruttenberg on Broadway: in dreams awake is the artist’s first major outdoor sculpture installation. The show is comprised of 6 large scale fantastical sculptures from 64th to 157th Street and is on view through February 2019. Ruttenberg is admired by critics and curators for her fantastical narrative sculptures that combine human, animal, and plant forms. In the Broadway malls installation, she explores a broad mix of sculptural media including patinated bronze, glass mosaic, transparent cast resin, and carefully orchestrated LED lighting. The interaction between color, form, opacity, transparency, and light itself as an artistic medium highlights the inherently theatrical nature of the visual storyteller’s art.
