Artworks by the aquarium

Art at the Aquarium. Bottom: The First Symphony of the Sea, by Toshio Sasaki, 1991.
Cast concrete terrazzo and ceramic tile. Commissioned by the

Old and new contrasts. Will anyone ever do anything with this old bathhouse
structure? Bottom right: My Coney Island Baby, by Robert Wilson, 2003.
Silk-screened glass brick. Commissioned by the MTA Arts for Transit.

the beach

  1. […] Island for an amazing summer with beach walks, Nathan’s, Grimaldi’s pizza, and Tom’s. We’ll be back next […]
