Have you seen our front window lately? Take a walk past one evening and see this neon installation created especially for our storefront window by the one and only Mark Clintberg.
Our Arrangement (2) illustrates two interlocking anchors. This piece is part of a larger series of works. Each combination of anchors represents a different short- or long-term relational arrangement. This series of signs features many quantities of anchors interlocking in different patterns, signifying agreements made between one, two, three, four or more individuals.
