Artist Richard Serra has created another must see exhibit.  “Junction/Cycle” by Richard Serra is now showing at the Gagosian Gallery in New York (located at 555 West 24th Street).  The huge gallery space is filled with two of Serra’s weatherproof steel sculptures and they have to be seen to be believed.  You’ll wonder how the sculptures were made.  You’ll wonder how are they transported and you’ll wonder how he was able to fit them inside a gallery.  Walking through them is also a fun experience.  The below photo is a tiny glimpse of what you will see, so I urge you to check out these fantastic sculptures in person.  Richard Serra was in attendance for the opening night reception and I was very fortunate to get a chance to talk with him.  If you are just discovering Serra’s name for the first time, I recommend you do some research and check out some aerial views of his sculptures.  They are nothing short of amazing! Thanks to Richard Serra for being so cool during our encounter.  If you are in the New York area, do not miss “Junction/Cycle” by Richard Serra, which runs at the Gagosian Gallery through November 26, 2011.
