The Spring Show NYC Contrasting Old With New Lars Bolander Creates a Visual Tour de Force
Taking a bold approach to the conventional design of art and antique fairs, Lars Bolander, one of America's leading interior designers and tastemakers, will create a visual tour de force for the inaugural Spring Show NYC, organized by the Art & Antique Dealers League of America (AADLA). The five-day fair opens with a benefit preview for the ASPCA, on Wednesday, April 27 at the Park Avenue Armory, Park Avenue and 67th Street.
"We are delighted to enlist the talented Mr. Bolander who will create the mise-en-scene for our inaugural Spring Show NYC," said Clinton Howell, president of the Art and Antique Dealers League of America. "We want this fair to be fresh, cheerful and thoroughly modern - a wonderful juxtaposition between the old and the new that speaks to the way people live today."
When visitors open the Armory's monumental oak doors, they will pass through a tented entrance flanked by rows of seven-and-a-half-foot tall obelisks. Once inside, Bolander takes full advantage of the Armory's spectacular, vaulted ceiling, integrating its intricate metalwork into the show's overall design scheme. Spotlights circling the balconies will dramatically illuminate the vault, showcasing the Armory's soaring height.
