    • At Pier 54 (you can’t miss it)
  • William Crump – Images
    • “Through an ironic brand of self-deprecating humor, Crump’s images remake our childish dreams into a more forgiving view of our present circumstances.  His work is an enlightened revision of a distinctly American question: how to cross the desert between our heroes and ourselves. The answer: with beauty and humor.”
