Description of Pictures: To New York with Love: The Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Window
May 08, 2018-February 24, 2019
This past holiday season, the Fifth Avenue department store Bergdorf Goodman featured the New-York Historical Society as part of its legendary holiday window display. "To New York With Love" highlighted seven of New York’s world-renowned cultural institutions as a visual ode to the art, history, music, and film that enrich the city's cultural landscape. Inspired by historic and artistic treasures in New-York Historical's Museum, artist Mark Gagnon reinvented iconic works in papier-mâché, including a Tiffany lamp and a chair that belonged to Marie Antoinette. In this whimsical display, a scaled-down version of the Bergdorf's window, Gagnon plays with size and materials, transforming life-size sculptures into one-foot models and painted portraits into three-dimensional figures.
Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, the Seymour Neuman Endowed Fund, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. WNET is the media sponsor.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
