This painting cycle, A Sense of Place, is permanently installed in Bronx Community College’s North Instructional Building and Library. The 98,600 square-foot building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects/Ismael Leyva Architects, features a third-floor balcony, grand staircases, marble floors, and a double barrel-vaulted ceiling. Twenty paintings nestle into the frieze that runs along the base of the 100-foot-long balcony which surrounds the main reading room, while two larger paintings (each measuring 5 feet x 10 feet) grace the stairwells that lead up to the 2nd floor library. A Sense of Place is one of the largest public art commissions the Bronx has seen since the 1930s.
