Hearst 8×10 Exhibition on view in NYC into mid-September; not to be missed

One of the most interesting exhibitions I have seen this summer is the “Hearst 8×10” show.  Readers will remember my enthusiasm about this show – an interesting group of jurors to review work, extraordinary venue, and NO SUBMISSION FEE was charged.    

The show continues at the Hearst building in NYC into mid-September (no set closing date as of this writing).

To see the exhibition, here’s the instructions from Bethany Lewis at Hearst:

Hi Mary,

Anyone wishing to view the exhibit can contact me.

The exhibit is coming down in mid-September. I don’t have an exact date yet.

Thanks,
Bethany

How to Access the Exhibition at Hearst Tower, 300 West 57th Street in NYC:

To gain permission to enter the Hearst Tower  and take the escalator past the “ICE FALLS” interior waterfall by Jamie Carpenter and view this fantastic exhibition on view in the two galleries on the Hearst Building‘s mezzanine:

email bglewis@hearst.com to make a reservation.

When you arrive at the building, go to the security desk just inside the door, and you will be given a pass to right the escalator up to the Mezzanine level and see the two galleries on opposite sides of this level.

The facade of the original building is what is seen from the street, but then, look up and you will see the amazing addition to the building designed by Foster and Partners, with Adamson Associates.

The New Yorker calls it “The most beautiful skyscraper to go up in New York since 1967″

Time stated “The storied New York City Skyline gets a surge of exhilaration with the first worthy addition of the century”

This award-winning building,  and see some installation views taken on opening night featured on Elizabeth Avedon’s blog here.

 

The exhibition will be up through the summer . Contact bglewis@hearst.com to make arrangements to see the show.
