Artist's Description

  1. of 6: Secular Cathedral above Blue Light"

When Grand Central Station was erected and brought into service as an
all-electric commuter terminal, the architects filled it with lightbulbs (which
were a novelty at that time.)

Since then, it has been determined that florescent fixtures are most cost effective, so at least some of these beautiful fixtures will be replaced.
Despite the fact that fluorescent lamps contain mercury, and have been classified as hazardous waste

Within a beautiful Beaux Arts architectural wonder, this alcove fills the artists with particular joy.

(Disclaimer: Without manipulation, the bulbs are ivory colored)
