The museum is proud to present a newly commissioned, site-specific artwork by New York-based, internationally recognized artist Polly Apfelbaum. Made from fabric samples and remnants purchased in New York's Garment District, the "painting" occupies most of the gallery's floor. The work poses such fundamental questions as, "What is painting?", "What is originality?", "What is order?", and "What are the bases of our judgments?", and finally, "What do we look down on?". 

About the Artist: Polly Apfelbaum achieved renown in the 1990s for making anti-monumental, large-scale “paintings” in fabric directly on museum floors. Her work is in the collections of the Belvedere 21 Museum of Contemporary Art, Vienna; Brooklyn Museum of Art; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Museum of Modern Art in New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, among others. She is represented by Frith Street Gallery in London and Galerie Nacht St. Stephen in Vienna.

This installation is free and open to the public.
