Avant Gallery Presents Tom Fruin’s Brooklyn Water Tower at Hudson Yards



June 19 – July 15, 2019

Hudson Yards, Level 1, New York, NY 10001

Tom Fruin’s colorful reimagined water tower and house illuminate the halls of Hudson Yards in his newest large scale installation. Working with plexiglass, steel, plastic, and scrap materials, Fruin takes on urban objects such as local buildings, billboards, and flags, elevating their form to emblematic status. His interpretation of these New York City monuments, as an incandescent, mosaic structures, are beacons of hope and unity, and were erected in Hudson Yards in honor of Pride.
