RCS Fine Art, the art advisory firm, recently curated and opened a new temporary exhibit titled, “New York Baseball Art,” in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas. The exhibition runs through September 15th and is open and accessible to the public from 9am – 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Featured artists include Leroy Neiman, Charles Fazzino, Graig Kreindler, James Fiorentino, Marjorie Phillips, and Marianne Moore. There are portraits of some of the games greats, alongside a rare poster featuring the thirty Dodgers players who brought home the first World Series Title to Brooklyn, NY. Fazzino’s contribution is the 3D pop art created for the NY Mets when they opened Citi Field in 2010.
Baseball, “America’s Pastime,” is part of our shared heritage; it is something that ties generations and communities together and helps define the American experience. It is entrenched in our popular culture, and affects our literature, our language, our politics, and our arts. This exhibit will delight both lovers of baseball and of art! And it’s just in time for The 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati in July. Stay tuned for more information about Fazzino’s involvement in the mid-summer classic in the next few weeks.
