In Central Park, at 60th and 5th, next-door to the grandeur of The Plaza, is Liz Glynn: Open House. A study in luxury, though as concrete as life, is her exhibition; rich in furniture from turn-of-the-century highfalutin wealthy. By bringing LA artist Liz Glynn’s sculpture-imitations of the gone but grand William C. Whitney Ballroom – where New York’s high-society would once consort – into Central Park – which has been public property since the 1850s – a statement is made. In my mind, it’s that despite one’s station in life, whatever class or estate or standing, we’re all people. No one should be barred from beauty. What was once reserved for only the Rich is now public, for consumption and enjoyment by anyone who happens upon it – and that’s a beautiful thing.
