infinite variety

Yesterday, I took my camera and walked over to the Park Avenue Armory to see the American Folk Art Museum's satellite installation, Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts.

The Armory has one of the biggest unobstructed interiors in Manhattan, and the quilts hover in space, hung in massive spirals and cylinders, pattern against pattern. As you walk around, the shifts in perspective let different quilts pop to life. It's absolutely amazing. (You can click the photos for larger views.)

On view 'til Thursday, and free.
