People at Russ and Daughters on Houston Street August 30, 3009. By Jason Polan. From the series “Every Person In New York.”
It seems like every person in New York is at Russ & Daughters this weekend, picking up orders and watching as salmon is sliced at the counter. The shop is open from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Saturday 09/26 and from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday 09/27. Join everyone on line, in the shop, and at the counter and be part of a New York tradition!
Artist Jason Polan is a master of all-encompassing projects, and his series Every Person In New York is both critically acclaimed and a personal favorite. How lucky we are that Jason decided to make some work at Russ & Daughters recently! Above is his work, “People at Russ and Daughters on Houston Street August 30, 2009.”
We hope Jason stops by to draw again soon. Who knows, maybe you’ll be a part of his art too! Check out more of Jason’s work on his site, at the checkout counter at The Museum of Modern Art, on The Criterion Collection‘s website, and at 20×200.
