November 19, 2021
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

1855 Broadway, Woodlands Art Collection, first floor

New York Tech is debuting the Woodlands Art Collection, located in the new Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D. Art Gallery and Student Lounge, with an inaugural exhibition featuring the sculpture of Emilie Brzezinski. Sharing themes from Brzezinski’s life, ”Art, Health and Wellness: The Power of Nature” includes three original sculptures: Cherry Bench II, a formidable bench hewn from a single cherry trunk, and Girl and Boy, two pieces from Brzezinski’s Water Garden Collection.

Featuring photos and a video of the artist in action with many of her other works, along with a display of the tools she used, the exhibit will also explore the critical connections between art and nature, healing, family, resilience, learning, and design.

This event is open to the public and will feature a presentation about the curation of the exhibit as well as insider information about the artist and her work.

Please note: All visitors will be required to complete a health screen, including proof of vaccination, to access the gallery.


The Woodlands Art Collection, located on the first floor of the flagship building of New York Tech's New York City campus, on the corner of Broadway and 61st Street, serves as an affirmation of the university’s renewed dedication to ecology, to the acres of ancient forests on our sister campus in Long Island, and to providing our students with unequaled experiences.
