Artist Nick Cave is a multitalented creative force. Working in varied medium and creating dynamic visual display, his art at once incorporates textile design, sculpture, dance and performance art. A professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a professionally trained dancer with Alvin Ailey, his current installation at Grand Central Terminal is not to be missed. Unsuspecting commuters come face to face with these dancing horses brought to life by members of the Alvin Ailey troupe, offering a moment of beauty, movement, and reflection in an otherwise routine driven commute. Detailed, elaborate, these horses make reference to the history of transportation of this glorious building. What a gift.
