Dan Funderburgh: Regarding Connection
Artist Dan Funderburgh’s larger than life patterned rainbow stretches across the entirety of the lobby at 2 MetroTech Center inviting viewers into a bright, cheerful, yet slightly wobbly world. This vinyl artwork explores the rainbow as a symbol of peace, hope, diversity, and connection. Funderburgh’s playful arch aims to connect viewers, drawing them into the lobby space to collectively celebrate the beautiful diversity all around us and being together as a community once again.
