This event has ended.

"BA-O-BA Lever House" is the most recent manifestations of artist Keith Sonnier's ongoing exploration of the visual interaction between neon light and architecture. The architecture of Lever House, especially the glass-encased lobby and stainless steel columns, is perfectly suited to Keith Sonnier's investigations of immaterial light and structural weight. This light sculpture was commissioned specifically for the lobby space, and the rods of colored neon articulate and expand the horizontal and vertical thrusts of the design. The experience of the artwork is heightened by the endless reflections of red, yellow, and blue gases in the expansive panes of glass, which also appears to project into the adjoining plazas.
