Downtown Ithaca

Downtown Ithaca is the place to enjoy the best that upstate New York has to offer. Surrounded by waterfalls, lakes, and forests, nowhere else in the region can you find such a wide variety of shops, restaurants, theaters, and historic architecture.

Following our successful sale of Frank Leahy's Ibeji Twin Arches to benefit the Cayuga Street Art Corridor last month, we're having another Facebook art auction! Up for sale is this beautiful figurative plaster sculpture by Christi Harrington, entitled The Creation of Masculine and Feminine. Harrington holds an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and served as a studio assistant for world-renowned sculptors Tom Shannon and Diana K. Moore. She currently is a professor of art at Mohawk Valley. Locally, Harrington is best known as the artist of Song of Innocence, the bronze sculpture of a dancing mother and child that has been a part of the DIA's permanent public collection since 2001. The Creation of Masculine and Feminine is a large-scale piece, measuring approximately 5' h x 4' w x 4' l inclusive of its wooden pedestal, to which it is firmly attached. Its total weight is unknown. The DIA will provide moving assistance, removing the piece from its basement-level storage location and placing it into a vehicle. The retail value of this stunning work is $2,600.00. We are starting the bids off with no minimum and no reserve. All proceeds will benefit the Cayuga Street Art Corridor and Art in the Heart 2015. If you wish to submit an anonymous bid, please email info@downtownithaca.com; otherwise, leave your bid in the comments. Bidding ends 3/10/15 at midnight. Good luck!
