SPWS Weather Interpreter (January 2012) Rena Leinberger’s new work, When it opens like this, up is not over, was presented on Friday under the Queensborough Bridge, at the junction of Queensboro Plaza and Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. The works will be installed until October 31 of this year–check it out–Congratulations Rena!
When it opens like this, up is not over, is a temporary site-specific work installed on a 50-foot fence that conceals the Manhattan skyline. The photographs below were taken by SPWS at the official unveiling on February 3, 2012; the work was commissioned by the New York City Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Urban Art Program and International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP).
