Life, Actually - A Public Art Installation

Created by Kinga Czerska

50 West Street, New York City - Opening January 2011

Life, Actually borders the Time Equities Inc. construction site at 50 West Street, and runs along West, J.P. Ward and Washington streets. The piece is an interpretation of the phases and dynamics of relationships. The mural includes three swirling, colorful segments, each inspired by a different stage and evoked emotions in relationships: The Beginning; Transitions; and Acceptance. The vibrant composition, interspersed with calming open spaces, reflects the varied emotional states that are integral to relationships, whether with a partner, through career or family, or simply with ourselves.

Re: Construction is a public art program produced by The Downtown Alliance. The project is curated by Ayelet Daniele Aldouby and Elinor Milchan of ARTEA Projects.
