Art Before Work

On my walk to work this morning, I stumbled on a free art exhibit in midtown.   In the lobby of the UBS Building, 1285 Avenue of the Americas, there is a fabulous free exhibit entitled To be a Lady: forty-five women in the arts, presented by Norte Maar.  

I loved the serendipidous opportunity to start my day with something a little different for my visual senses. 

The forty-five artists, born in the last century, happen to be women.  
Best of all, there's a small Louise Nevelson sculpture included:  Untitled

The exhibit will be on view, free to the public, through January 18, 2013.   See the image gallery here.

The artists:  Alma Thomas, Charmion von Wiegand, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, Barbara Morgan, Irene Rice Pereira, Janice Biala, May Wilson, Lenore Tawney, Louise Bourgeois, Edith Schloss, Grace Hartigan, Ruth Asawa, Betye Saar, Pat Passlof, Jay DeFeo, Susan Weil, Lee Bontecou, Viola Frey, Judy Dolnick, Kathleen Fraser, Hermine Ford, Mimi Gross, Nancy Grossman, Elizabeth Murray, Judy Pfaff, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Mira Schor, Mary Judge, Nancy Bowen, Lindsay Walt, Michelle Jaffé, Elisabeth Condon, Tamara Gonzales, Jessica Stockholder, Brece Honeycutt, Ellie Murphy, Julia K. Gleich, Austin Thomas, Ellen Letcher, Rachel Beach, Vanessa German, Kristen Jensen, Brooke Moyse, and Nathlie Provosty

This post is perfect example of how you turn small things and thoughts into popular art forms. Little art things.
