Time Will Tell
Queens, New York
Photographer: Juan Luque
“Time Will Tell” was part of the Public Art for Public Schools Program with the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art Program. The artwork was commissioned by the New York City Department of Education and the New York City School Construction Authority. This glass mural installation is ink on glass made of 14 panels each 120” x 48” long.
The artist, Monika Bravo, was interested in the transformation of space: from landscape to cityscape, shaped first by nature through creeks, hills, marshes and reshaped by migration, language, distance and culture. The visual form is that of layered planes simile of a hologram the layers of information gathered by time, spaces divided by mind, places shaped by emotions and people.
