The large scale Justin Yellin Lincoln Center installation is a wondrous showcase of some of the Brooklyn-based artist's recent glass sculptures. Yellin creates human silhouettes encased within layers of clear glass with carefully orchestrated collages and brushstrokes.

The stunning exhibit was commissioned by the New York City Ballet and is presently housed in the promenade within Lincoln Center's David H. Koch theater. The New York City Ballet curates a contemporary art series that has played host to such names as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.

The choice by the Lincoln Center to commission such a large installation, one of three for the season, is an interesting example of art events that allow for consumers to fully immerse themselves in an experience.
