GREENWICH, Conn. — Greenwich Library's Grand Stairs are looking a little grander.
Artist Katherine Daniels has created an art installation of colorful plastic strips woven into the gridded surround of the library's grand stairs. Daniels named the installation “Flight” after considering the several meanings her audience could associate with the word.
“I like the idea of a literal flight of stairs playing with the other meanings the word can have in the context of a library,” Daniels said in a statement. She said flight can take on the meaning of “ascending to knowledge” or a “flight of fancy."
Daniels received her bachelor's of fine arts degree from Rhode Island School of Design and her master's in fine arts from Johnson State College. She has been awarded multiple grants for the creation of site-specific installations throughout New York City as well as studio grants from Chashama, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, according to the library.
Her installation is part of a Flinn Gallery show called “More, More, More.”
