I can’t wait to go to check out this new exhibit at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine which according to their website opened on March 1st. Read on…
Over the course of two years, pioneering Chinese contemporary artist Xu Bing culled detritus from construction sites across the rapidly changing urban landscape of Beijing, and transformed it into his most monumental project to date: Phoenix (2008-10). A feat of engineering and ingenuity, Phoenix is composed of two birds, a male called Feng and a female called Huang. Feng and Huang—each weighing 12 tons and measuring 90 and 100 feet long, respectively—are now coming to the Cathedral. They will hang suspended in the Nave, two majestic birds in perpetual flight beneath its celestial ceiling.

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine could become a landmark under a deal between the church, Community Board 9 and developers of a new 14-story building set to be built alongside the cathedral.
Community Board 9 approved a resolution asking the Landmarks Preservation Commission to landmark the entire cathedral campus with an exception for a 14-story, 428-unit apartment building. Revenue from that project will fund church repairs, upgrades and ongoing operations. The 121-year-old cathedral is in need of millions of dollars in repairs and upgrades.
Previously the church leased land on 110th Street and Morningside Avenue to the developers who built Avalon Morningside Park, a 20-story luxury apartment building, in 2007 that includes 20 percent affordable housing.
The area from the church eastward towards Frederick Douglass Circle is part of what is known as “Gateway To Harlem”, which continues to undergo dramatic change, and into what some are now calling SOHA (South Harlem).

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
