This mug features an image of midtown taken from Roosevelt Island. Visible landmarks include a variety of buildings. Classics, like the Chrysler Building. Later towers like the engineering marvel Citycorp Center, and the questionable residential tower 432 Park Avenue, which is still under construction in this image. 3.5" x 3.5" diameter
The City Mug series were part of a body of work that I sold on the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn as souvenirs. As objects I wanted them to speak of the city that they depicted, and be more than just some knick-knack that a tourist picked up on the street in the Big Apple. Now, several years later this mug represents part of a limited series.
