Brookie Maxwell: 42nd Street: A Walk Across

About the Exhibition

The 42nd Street: A Walk Across diorama, created by New York artist Brookie Maxwell (b.1957, USA), offers a tour of 42nd Street from river to river. Each of the twelve sections depicts a block at a different hour of the day and during each month of the year. The views show how First Avenue appears at 9am in January and continue in sequence ending with Eleventh Avenue at 9pm in December.

The circular diorama is constructed of clay, plaster, wood, and acrylic. Each of the twelve sections, measuring more than a foot high and more than three feet wide, will be lighted.
