Museum of the City of New York (Light Installation)


The dazzling focal point of the City Museum`s main entry space, this brilliant light installation is suspended above the Rotunda. Conceived by Cooper Joseph Studio, it accentuates the Rotunda`s sweeping circular staircase. The 5,283 points of light boldly complement the City Museum`s 1932 neo-Georgian home, reflecting its mission to connect the city`s past and present. Using state of the art technology, the piece needs minimal energy and generates virtually no heat. It is among the museum`s most photographed features.
