As fans of stained glass in all its forms, the Sherriff Stained Glass Specialists team takes particular pleasure when it is used as such an expressive medium and available to such a wide public audience. This piece of art is no exception.
American sculptor Tom Fruin has designed a stained glass house for the DUMBO Arts Festival in Brooklyn and it is quite a spectacle to look at. Titled Reflection/Kolonihavehus (Danish for ‘Garden House’), this stained glass art installation proved to be the most popular piece and was voted the 2014 DUMBO Arts Festival Audience Favourite with nearly double the votes of its nearest competitor!
Reflection/Kolonihavehus is a two-part experience. The Kolonihavehus is the stained glass house itself while ‘Reflection’ is an artistic performance by Danish duo CoreAct that poetically interprets our daily choices, lack of choice and their subsequent consequences.
Called the Art Under the Bridge Festival at its time of founding in 1997, the DUMBO Arts Festival has grown into the single largest free art event in New York City. It has expanded to such proportions that over 200,000 people now come from far and wide to visit the exhibitions.
