Update ~ Obsessorize/Dashing Through New York is currently on view at SVA Gramercy Gallery, 209 East 23rd Street, in the Lobby, through Saturday, March 9, 2019.
Organized by the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District and Marie Claire magazine, Obsessorize will feature 28 giant sculptures (eight-feet high) created by students at The School of Visual Arts (SVA). The 28 students were inspired by head-to-toe accessories, taking inspiration from past decades of iconic accessories. The results will be enclosed in plexiglass cases. Obsessorize will be on view from October 4 to October 30, free and open to the public located on Madison Avenue between East 57th and East 86th Streets.
This is the fifth time SVA and Madison Avenue have mounted a themed public art exhibition as a focal point of week-long retail festivals and events.
We started at Madison Avenue and 58th Street.
Opening night on October 4th kicks-off with the unveiling of the SVA public art installation, followed by an evening of shopping. It will culminate with a VIP Breakfast on ‘Art & Style’ hosted by Marie Claire.
