The transformation of the waterfront of Lower Manhattan continues with the much-anticipated completion of a large-scale work of Public Art. Day's End, a site-specific sculpture by the artist David Hammons, will debut later in the fall along the Hudson River. In preparation, the Whitney Museum is hosting this small exhibition, combining design plans for the project with historical photographs of the neighborhood from the 1970s and 1980s. The exhibit provides an interesting tour through the lost art and faded culture of the Meatpacking District.
