    Daniel A Bruce Exhibit

    Red sky at night, Sailors delight. Red sky at morning, Sailors take warning.

    Opening Reception: Friday, September 5th (begins at 6:00)

    Exhibition: September 5th-September 26th (open daily from 9:30am-10:30pm)

    Cannon’s Walk
    South Street Seaport
    206 Front Street

    Exhibition Description:

    The exhibition is a solo effort by New York City artist Daniel A Bruce. This site-specific and viewer-participatory installation of works was designed to motivate curiosity and entertain. For Cannon’s Walk, Mr. Bruce has chosen to explore folk beliefs such as superstition and myth while also reflecting on commonplace collectibles that we usually keep for both sentimentality and novelty.
    The title of this exhibit is “Red sky at night, Sailors delight. Red sky at morning, Sailors take warning.” This phrase or omen casts a shadow of fallacy over the entire show, but was once a commonly held belief by sailors and therefore a well-matched title for this public indoor space which also marks the site of John Cannon’s Early 18th Century Warf.

    One of the art works in the exhibit is a six foot wine bottle in the form of a fish titled, Fish Bottle. At the center of this show is a work titled Fortune Telling Boulder, which coin-operates upon our belief in suggestion and practical advisory while associating art and nature with the mysteries of fortune telling. Also on view are two table display cases which contain a collection of various objects that signify faith and fortune. Among other supporting works are four new neon signs that were designed and fabricated to both complement the architecture of the space and amplify themes of the exhibition.
