Ryan McGinness: Signs, 2014

Working with the New York City Department of Transportation who fabricated and installed each piece, Ryan McGinness’s new project Signs, 2014 features a series of fifty vinyl on aluminum signs posted around the streets of Manhattan. While technically on view until August 30, 2014, these public works of art are slowly falling victim to the underground entrepreneurial mindset of NYC, and disappearing from their present locations. Here, we look through some of the “Notes” about each piece published by Ryan McGinness Studios, as this might be the only chance you have to actually see the works.

90 Minutes in Chelsea

Late Friday afternoons in the Summer are a pretty chill time to look at art in Chelsea. Although if you’re not careful, you’ll end up missing a bunch of stuff as some galleries really adopt a relaxed schedule after the 4th of July. It’s summer though, so take it easy.
