From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

Last week I had an aurora borealis time during my first visit to the “Energy: The Power of Art” exhibit at the Nassau County Museum of Art on the Gold Coast of Long Island.

Above video has photos & video of “Aurorae” (2019) by Miya Ando (1978).
As soon as I arrived, I watched an hour PBS documentary about aurora borealis.
Then I lingered long in the Mrs. Vincent de Roulet Gallery with artist MIYA ANDO‘s atmospheric “Aurorae” – her aurora borealis installation commissioned by the Nassau County Museum of Art.
“Aurorae” – an imposing 238 x 120 x 120 inches – is delicate hand painted fabric hanging from a spiral of aluminum suspended from the high ceiling.
Such haunting Northern Lights on Long Island’s North Shore.
