Description

Fall's the time to fixate on fashion and “Obsessorize.” SVA 3D Design Chair Kevin O'Callaghan and his BFA Design students are back at it with their hyper-imaginative works. Inspired by past decades of iconic head-to-toe accessories, SVA’s “Obsessorize: Common Objects Uncommon Accessories” public art exhibition on Madison Avenue hits the streets on Thursday, October 4, through Monday, October 29.

Obsessorize” is a celebration of art and style timed to coincide with Marie Claire magazine’s blockbuster October 2018 issue. 39 participating storeswithin the Madison Avenue BID brings to life the intersection of art and shopping via this 3D experience on the sidewalks and in stores running all the way from 86th Street down to 58th Street (more details here).

Supervised by O’Callaghan, the exhibition showcases 75 student-designed sculptures on view in 19 plexiglass cases positioned along these 29 blocks. The walking tour will be led by O'Callaghan and his students, and will include stops at each of the displays.

This marks the fifth time that SVA and Madison Avenue have mounted a themed public art exhibition as a focal point of weeklong retail festivals and events.
