About The Collection
About Snow Day
Nothing encapsulates the enchanting spirit of winter more than a snowy landscape, from the smell of fresh snow settling on pine branches to the dazzling glare of the sun over a blanket of white. The works in this collection capture the sense of wonder and mystery in a snow-covered world. In Todd Matarazzo's Prospect Park, Hiroji Kubota's Yellowstone National Park, and Jitka Hanzlova's Untitled (German Dogs), animals and people navigate vast, icy expanses, whereas Moises Saman's Peru. Ica. November 21, 2010, depicts a trail of footprints, the aftermath of human presence on an otherwise untouched landscape. James Welling's photograph of the Philip Johnson Glass House and Joel Sternfeld's A View of the Hudson highlight the ways in which a snowfall can dramatically alter an otherwise familiar scene, while artists like Rong Rong and Inri and Yutaka Sone focus on the aesthetic and formal qualities of a snowy scene. While Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson's stark photograph of an iceberg in Greenland is a reminder of the tremendous power of the natural world, artists like Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz, Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir, and Christopher Mir emphasize the sense of childlike wonder and playful excitement inspired by a snow day. Bundle up and enjoy the holiday season with these wintery works. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
