The Young Men’s and Women’s Real Estate Association (YM/WREA) enjoyed a Downtown Office Lobby Art Tour and cocktail reception hosted by Jack Resnick & Sons at the brand new 10 Corso Como.
The event was organized and co-hosted by Cindy Farkas Glanzrock of Glanzrock Curatorial Services, whose Building Art Curatorial Program (BACP) curates and manages lobby beautification for many office buildings in New York, and included diverse examples of downtown Manhattan commercial properties which are examples of the growing lobby art and public arts trend throughout New York.
Select highlights from the tour included the newly unveiled “Rose III” by Isa Genzken at Zuccotti Park; Danny Meyer’s Manhatta restaurant and Bay Room featuring photographer Karsten Staiger, New York Love Story with over 100 rotating works from partnership with the Artist Pension Trust at 28 Liberty Street; Street artist Hellbent speaking about his work with leasing director Scott Silverstein of Equity Office at 44 Wall Street; Doug Smith, owner of the World Trade Gallery, speaking about commissioned work of artist Theo Pinto with Myles Fennon, managing director of Union Investment’s 140 Broadway; and Jack Resnick & Sons’ 199 Water Street, which features Frank Stella’s iconic “Sinjerli I,” “Basra Gate II” and “Damascus Gate II.”
Resnick’s Executive Managing Director Brett Greenberg was on hand to speak about the artwork and hosted post- tour cocktails at 10 Corso Como in the South Street Seaport.
