Hudson Yards has a new gallery, with an inaugural exhibition in June. Located in a former carriage house built in 1910, Hudson Yards Gallery will present curated mixed-media exhibits two-days each month. Well-known photographer/artist James Weber will be at the helm, curating the monthly collection, which will have its inaugural exhibition on June 11 & 12.
In 2015, Hudson Yards and its surrounding area looked like nothing more than an enormous construction site, with so many different projects, it was hard to separate one from the other. But in September of that year, the MTA completed and opened its #7 crosstown subway line to Hudson Yards, and the artwork alone could be a destination.
To raise awareness and funds for the critically endangered gorilla species, public artists Gillie and Marc have created a massive sculpture of the animal that will be unveiled later this month in Hudson Yards’ Bella Abzug Park. Titled King Nyani, Swahili for gorilla, it’s the world’s largest bronze gorilla sculpture.
