When my daughter Laurie and I attended the ANIMODULES Farewell Reception and Founders Talk at the Nassau County Museum of Art last month, I was revisiting the sculptures, and she was seeing the artistic Agents of Peace for the first time.

While passing a studio on my way out, I saw MERYL FEUER with an ethereal crown of paper cranes, a symbol of peace. The dozens of small birds formed the airy mobile suspended from the ceiling above her.

Aurora Borealis at Nassau County Museum of Art

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)
August 10, 2019

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.

  • VIDEO:   “Aurorae” by Miya Ando  [music: “53 Mirrors” by Jeff Oster]

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.
