Illuminate: Design in Light
This exhibition looks at the many ways in which New York City designers use glass in their lighting. In these pieces, glass is an essential component of the design: creating form in curves and angles; modulating and reflecting light; and referencing its history as an agent of illumination, from Venetian chandeliers to neon signs. "The designers in this exhibition have taken lighting far beyond its function of illumination," says curator Jennifer Scanlan. "These are really works of art, that use light as one of their materials."
