The Whitney has on view two solo exhibitions whose titles elicit tension from a pair of artists who couldn't be more different form each other: David Smith and Sherrie Levine.

In honor of Arts for Transit passing its quarter-century milestone, SundayArts took a look at some of the system’s most celebrated works and the artists behind them. This week we focus on Tom Otterness’s, “Life Underground” at 14th St and 8th Ave.

Philippe de Montebello explores the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of 19th and 20th Century European paintings and sculpture.

A look at MoMA’s new exhibition, “The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today.”

SundayArts takes a road trip to Mountainville, in the Hudson Highlands, to spend some time at the Storm King Art Center. Storm King is a unique 500 acre open air museum, recently making news with Maya Lin’s stunning new earthwork, “Wavefield”. With roughly 125 of this century’s best sculptures surrounded by a lush landscape, rolling [...]

Once considered a bad boy in the art world, Serra is now one of its favorite sons. Rafael Pi Roman sat down with the world-renowned sculptor talks about his [...]

Asa Ames is a mysterious and tragic figure. The young sculptor died from consumption when he was 27 years, 7 months, and 7 days old. Though his own life was short, he immortalized family members and neighbors in the vicinity of Evans, Erie County, New York, in a legacy of twelve three-dimensional portraits of children [...]

Summer has a kind of Jekyll/Hyde duality. As appealing as outdoor events might sound – concerts and plays in the park, hot dog eating contests on the boardwalk – I find myself seeking cool indoor places more often than not. Two major art shows currently on view – Henry Moore outside at the New York [...]
