So, I know I’m late posting this, but I really wanted to show everyone some photos I took of Bloomingdale’s department store windows during the 2016 holiday season. The theme for Bloomingdale’s windows this year was “Light,” and artists were invited to create chandeliers embodying that theme. During the exhibition, the chandeliers were auctioned off and the money donated to a children’s charity.
So here are the chandeliers, reflecting the artists’ very different approaches to the common theme. This first one is titled “Sparkle,” by artist Allison Eden.
The close-up shot shows the three-dimensional details of both the chandelier and the tile mosaic aquatic background.
This next one is titled “Brilliant,” by artist Susanne Bartsch.
This mirrored chandelier is titled “Luminescence,” by artist Sean Augustine March.
Here’s “Moon Glow,” by artist Abby Modell.
This window was titled “Aura,” a collaboration between artists Erika DeVries and Jonah Meyer.
In this window, artist Inma Barrero utilized clay, porcelain, metal, glass, and wood to create “Reflections.” And this one really did reflect the light, making it challenging to photograph!
With that last photo, I’ll officially close the door on the 2016 holiday season – but I can hardly wait to see what the department stores do in 2017!
