A long-ago destroyed art work by the Pop Art maestro Roy Lichtenstein comes to life for a limited time.
In December 1983, Lichtenstein created the Greene Street Mural, a site-specific, and temporary wall painting measuring 18′ × 96 1/2′ at the Castelli Gallery at 142 Greene Street. In accordance with Lichtenstein’s intention, the work was destroyed after the six-week show. Now, more than thirty years later, the piece will be recreated in Chelsea at the Gagosian Gallery under the watchful eye of Lichtenstein’s former assistant.
The iconic painting will only be on show until October 17th, so pencil in an art appreciation day ASAP.
