Birds flock to the Garment District in public art exhibit
Located in a street-level window at 215 West 38th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through June 28th.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance announced the latest in its ongoing series of public art exhibits, showcasing 30 hand-built, folk-art inspired ceramic pieces representing the intricate interplay and personalities of backyard birds. Created by artist Laurie Carretta Scupp, the installation is titled Endlings: The first, and last, of their kind.

Located in a street-level window at 215 West 38th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through June 28th. Endlings is part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations and over 15 years has produced more than 200 installations, exhibits and performances.

“Laurie’s fantastic one-of-a-kind creations embody the Garment District’s vibrant and imaginative character,” said Barbara A. Blair, president of the Garment District Alliance. “We’re proud to showcase this talented artist through our Garment District Space for Public Art program, and we encourage local New Yorkers and visitors to take in this intriguing springtime exhibition!”

Through Endlings, Scupp strives to embody the personalities of the avian actors she observes in her backyard from her studio as they engage in seemingly operatic dramas and comedies. She is inspired by the birds’ fluttering of wings, the cacophony of their songs, and their abrupt flights and landings. Each unique work is a three-dimensional representation of a specific character within these springtime sagas to which Scupp is the audience. The earthiness of the clay as a medium reflects the nature and spirit of birds, acknowledgement of environmental responsibilities, and a celebration of the intrinsic beauty in which these subjects both embody and inspire.

Influenced by fairytales, folklore and nature, Scupp’s artwork presents the archetypal imagery from these fanciful and sometimes dark stories for further interpretation by the viewer. Primarily creating hand-built ceramics from earthenware clay, she lives and works in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

The Garment District is home to thousands of people working in the creative economy, including fine and performing artists, designers, architects, photographers and more than a hundred theaters, galleries, performance spaces and studios.
