Richard Levy Gallery

In the Project Room, the gallery presents Your reversed Berlin sphere, an interactive sculpture by critically acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson. Typical of his work, this sculpture plays with viewer perception. As the circular element transitions from yellow to blue, depending on the time of day and the position of the viewer, the glass acts as both a mirror to your reflection and a prism to the world outside.

Toys, cartoons and skateboard culture come together with finely-wrought craft in Show Funko Roasto, featuring ceramicist Will Rimel and jewelry-maker Zachery Lectenberg.
