Associate Professor of Art Rebecca Murtaugh is exhibiting in New York City in The Other End of the Line, a major public art installation addressing the connections and differences between the cultures of upstate New York and New York City. Inspired by the freight train High Line's history of transporting goods from upstate New York into New York City, Francis Cape will transport a previously-occupied residential trailer from Sullivan County, N.Y., to Gansevoort Plaza under the High Line.
The trailer's interior will serve as an exhibition space featuring artworks from the thriving upstate New York art community, selected by guest curator Ian Berry. The exhibition will be on view from Oct. 22 - Nov. 21, with an artist reception on Oct. 22, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., at the corner of Gansevoort Street and Washington Streets.
