In conjunction with the United Nations International Year of Light, Joseph Cavalieri, the founder of CAVAglass is making 25 site specific light boxes for the gallery space at the hotel that spans one city block between 42nd/41st streets. Originally, stained glass was used as a recruitment tool in Medieval times, telling stories of the bible to illiterate people. Joseph Cavalieri’s art continues to use illuminated glass, but he updates the visuals with modern day stories, imaginary landscapes and contemporary figures. These range from portraits of Jackie O, Agnes Moorehead, Isaac Hayes, and Bill Pearl (Mr. Universe), to the Simpson’s.
