George Kroenert grew up in Oklahoma, and has been working in NYC for the last 27 years. He studied landscape architecture at Kansas State University and holds a MFA in theatrical lighting from Parsons School of Design. Kroenert had his latest solo exhibition at Elizabeth Harris Gallery in New York.
Join civic leaders, urbanists, policy makers, designers and artists for Design Trust’s 2017 Art + Design Benefit Auction on November 1 at Dune Studios. The gala evening features a spirited silent auction showcasing the phenomenal talents of emerging and established artists and designers in NYC, while investing in our collective stake in democratic public space.
Show your support for the Design Trust and ensure NYC's public realm remains PUBLIC FOR ALL. Come celebrate with us our receipt of the 2017 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Corporate and Institutional Achievement.
All proceeds support the Design Trust for Public Space, a nonprofit organization who unlocks the potential of NYC's public space.
The bristling strips of plastic warp the radiance of the round fixtures (familiar from tenement kitchens), while varying gauges of yellow and orange construction mesh crosshatch the walls, adding evocations of extraterrestrial radio static to Kroenert’s charmingly utilitarian cosmos.
