ArtBridge is pleased to return to the site of the Barlcays Center with its latest installation, Intersections. In the works by the eight artists featured in the exhibition, lines meet, colors collide, and patterns form and break apart. Some are orderly, others unpredictable and at large scale in the public realm, can be seen as artful, if not playful interpretations of the varied rhythms of the urban environment that surrounds us.
