Just as the Gates installation in NY's Central Park came down, another work of artistic splendor prepared itself for the world to descend upon it. The Nomadic Museum, as seen above at its temporary home through June of 2005 on Pier 54 along the Hudson River in NY, brings photographer Gregory Colbert's vision to the U.S. This travelling exhibit combines the beauty of prefab architecture, diy culture and the growing necessity to re-engage our public spaces in ways that inspire our daily lives.
The imagery in Colbert's Ashes and Snow exhibit captures the essence of the human spirit in harmony with whales, elephants and other animals. The Nomadic Museum opens on March 5 through June 6 at its current location and then makes its way to Los Angeles, Beijing and Paris.
