A cup of joe? NYC installation/inspiration.

If you know me, you know I love coffee. If you have met me, even if you havent met me, you probably know that about me. While we were in NYC last weekend, we literally stumbled upon this great installation. No, really. We came up on the Flatiron Building from its less iconic side…

This is what I saw first. What is this pile of markers and cups? What is going on here? 

Oh heavens! I love it! Each one an individual work of art, suspnded, slowly turning…

I wish I had been able to see the artist working; interacting with, or ignoring passers-by. Would regular New Yorkers stop, and notice? 


There were designs, landscapes, portraits, street scenes. I could have remained captivated for hours, coffee in hand…

The artist’s name is Gwyneth Leech. She works in the space Tues. – Sat from 11-2 pm. The exhibit/installation, titled “Hypergraphia: The Cup Drawings” began in September, and runs through the end of this month. I haven’t had a chance to check out the website yet, but I fully intend to. So glad I chanced upon it. It was refreshing, and entertaining, and visually pleasing to be sure!
