January 22nd, 2018: Ribbon cutting ceremony and opening reception of Laurence Jenkell’s New York Art exhibit in Manhattan

 

 

 

 

The ribbon cutting ceremony and opening reception of Laurence Jenkell art exhibition “Crossroads of the World” is on Monday, January 22 at 4:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Port Authority of NY & NJ Bus Terminal, located between 8th and 9th Avenue and 40 ° and 42 ° Street West Manhattan, near Broadway and Times Square.

The exhibit gathers 30 life-size wrapped Candy Sculptures and another 80 artworks throughout the second floor of The PABT and a pop-up gallery located in the South Wing of the terminal’s main concourse.

Among the Candy Sculptures displayed are Jenkell’s internationally known Flag Candies that have toured the globe starting in 2011 at the G20 Summit in France, Spain, Singapore, China, United Arab Emirates and now New York City.

As Laurence Jenkell love to say “The flag is to a population what the candy is to an individual: a personal history and a collective memory,”

The Highlights of this exhibit:

  • 9/11 remembrance flag, a tribute to the 37 fallen men and women of The Port Authority Police Department,
  • Wrapping Trash Can,
  • Coffee Maker Wrapping,
  • Jelly Wrap.

The three sculptures are meant to address issues surrounding environmental sustainability.
