Medium: Sculpture, printmaking

While Valerie Maynard has exhibited her work and taken residencies all over the world, the New York City-born and raised sculptor and printmaker has left a lasting mark on her hometown. As part of a station renovation, Maynard was commission by the MTA to create a permanent installation at the 125th Street Subway Station. Her 2003 Polyrhythmics of Consciousness and Light depicts colors and shapes against a geometric field that she describes as capturing "boundless energy" and "the Harlem of our dreams."
