Throwback Thursday and the Bridge Art Show

Two years ago on this day I wrote about the 2014 Bridge Art Show and interviewed artist Jodi Harvey-Brown. If you attended either packed opening at Nyack’s First Friday or the following week in Tarrytown, then you may have seen “Imagination’s Journey,” a sculpture of the new bridge she created from a book and specifically for the show.

Both Outreach Centers display art from the show — interpretations of the current or new bridge — as the project makes art in the water. Maybe I’m the only one who thinks the new bridge and the equipment used to build it are colorful.

That said, construction crews continue (say that three times fast) to install the bright blue structural steel girders for the Rockland approach. No doubt you’ve seen them near the Westchester side as well.

Bet you didn’t think two years would slip by so quickly. Neither did I.

I’d like to know what you think.

    Thank you to @Linkedin connections and members who read, like and repost my blog. The Bridge Art Show was a terrific way to connect artists in Westchester and Rockland Counties by asking them – using the medium of their choice – to create their versions of either the current or new Tappan Zee Bridge. Many artists’ works were sold, and some works are on display at the Tarrytown and Nyack Outreach Centers.
