FLATIRON PROW ART SPACE
A REALLY SPECIAL GALLERY
Not only by its localization, right on the round tip of the flatiron buildings, especially the dollhouse-like shop window makes the Flatiron Pro Art Space to a special place. 30 feet long and 10 feet wide, the small but fine gallery formed exactly where the 5th Avenue and Broadway cross.
As we strolled there at night, the brightly lit gallery immediately kept our attention and we admired the artwork “Constructing from the Razor’s Edge” by Christina Lihan. Filigree and simultaneously powerful seems to float New York City’s iconic buildings in front of our eyes. Buildings like the St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building or the Guggenheim Museum and much more.
The artist Christina Lihan is known for her intricate, hand-cut, three-dimensional streetscapes. What began with a charcoal drawing sketch becomes alive and fascinated by the many small details. The work blends in almost perfectly with the small Gallery and merges symbolically with the architecture around them.
Surprisingly, it is run by Sprint, who is the tenant of the first floor space of the building and provides space for a rotation of exhibitions of different artists that deal with the issue of sustainability and environmental awareness.
Outstanding to use such a location to make it available to the public, and thus to enrich the cityscape again and again visually and in content.
