Abstract Art Shines In “Lower Manhattan Spaces”

Sunshine 2

On June 20th, the lobby of 45 Broadway will morph into a vivid showcase of color and contrast.

An exhibit called “Lower Manhattan Spaces” will feature five large, colorful, abstract paintings all created specifically for the building’s atrium. According to artist Adrienne Farb, the works “envelope us, both by their scale and by their intensity. They are powerful, delicate and very determined.”

On June 22nd, from Noon to 2 P.M. in the lobby of 45 Broadway, you can meet the artist behind these potent paintings.

Suzanne Sunshine studied with art historian Kermit Champa at Brown University and graduated from Columbia Business School. In addition to her art and work as an assistant art curator, Sunshine is also the founder of the commercial real estate advisory firm S. Sunshine & Associates, LLC. The firm advises non-profits on real estate matters. Sunshine has, in fact, helped several nonprofits move to Lower Manhattan.

Sunshine will donate ten percent of the proceeds from exhibit sales to one of those non-profits, Poets & Writers. Located at 90 Broad Street, it is the nation’s largest nonprofit literary organization serving poets, fiction writers and creative nonfiction writers.

The “Lower Manhattan Spaces” exhibit runs from June 20th to November 6th and is presented by chashama, a non-profit that works with property owners to activate unused real estate for use by artists.
