Rodger Stevens is today’s featured Nyack Window Project artist.
His work, ‘2″ x 4″ x Tree’, is one of the 16 installations you can see in storefronts in downtown Nyack through the end of January.
Conceived by award-winning set designer and village resident Joanne Howard, the Nyack Window project is in its second year. This week Nyack News And Views features the work of several of this year’s artists.
‘2″ x 4″ x Tree’ by Rodger Stevens
Stevens stated that he “wanted the tree to look almost as if it had been cobbled together simply from whatever construction materials were at hand, on site.”
Rodger Stevens is a sculptor who was originally from Brooklyn, New York. He went to the Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts. He has a gallery representation in Los Angeles and New York. Stevens is the Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design located in Manhattan. He has done work for clients such as West Elm, Tiffany & Company, Nike, Starbucks, The American Greetings Company and others. Stevens and his wife Johanna Goodman are both artists who have their holiday windows next to each other. They live in Nyack with their two children.
‘2″ x 4″ x Tree’ is on display through the end of January in the windows of the Athene building at the corner of Main Street and Broadway in Nyack. Stevens’ entry in the 2016 Nyack Window project was sponsored by Nyack Hospital.
