The New York Port Authority exhibition space can be a delightful surprise. Currently on view we spotted the work of needle artist Kevin Lustik and his exhibit In Stitches, filling the two large glass cases that makeup the exhibition space.
His intricate, and very thoughtful work, incorporates beads, buttons, needles and a bit of humor, bringing a smile to the faces of viewers.
In Stitches by Kevin Lustik will be on view through January, 2022 at Port Authority, south building, located between 40th and 41st Streets between 8th and 9th Avenues. Enter on 9th Avenue, go up the stairs, and find ‘In Stitches’ in two large glass cases on the right-hand side.
Last year at this time, LustikArt was on view with ChaShaMa in the exhibition Sew On & Sew Forth ~ and this past summer inside the New York Public Library, Tompkins Square location, with his exhibition Kevin Lustik. That Sew & Sew. additionally at the Leslie-Lohman Project Space and Garment District Alliance.
