The work, which spans five decades, uses abstract/metaphorical forms to explore color in multiple approaches.

Monti and Porcaro add color to their casting materials. Beach and Doyle apply paint to built forms. Salmanson and Urkowitz turn to materials that have inherent color. Through casting, painting and found color, the artists find ways to leverage hue and form into unified works of art.

This exhibition is made possible with support from New York State Council for the Arts, Public Funds from the New York City Dept. of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Foundation for Contemporary Art and The Greenwich Collection.

Directions: Take 2, 3, 4 or 5 trains to Franklin Avenue. Walk two blocks against the traffic on Franklin. Walk ¾ block to 558 St. Johns Place. FiveMyles is within easy walking distance from the Brooklyn Museum.
