Art Exhibition by Antonia Papatzanaki on View in Manhattan Oct. 4-31

NEW YORK – The exhibition titled Thank You for My Breaths! by Antonia Papatzanaki is now on view in Manhattan, October 4-31, 24 hours a day. Papatzanaki is officially part of the City Artist Corps Grant program, presented by The New York Foundation for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

The exhibition is a series of digital artworks inspired by images of local varieties of trees as observed under a microscope, revealing their inner structure and beauty. The vivid colors of the work offer a powerful symbol of hope— as long as we breathe, we can make a fresh start.

There are approximately 5.2 million trees and 168 different tree species in New York City. This urban forest helps manage rainwater runoff and provides oxygen while cleaning the air by absorbing some of the carbon dioxide produced by New York City's residents.

The artworks connect the local with the global to raise public awareness regarding the importance of plants as a basis for ecological balance. Over centuries, plants shape the biological state of things on planet Earth. By using the energy of the sun— a practically inexhaustible extraterrestrial energy source— through photosynthesis, they largely determine climate, the atmospheric composition, carbon and water cycles, food production, and much more. So, take a deep breath and thank the trees and plants for their generosity!

The art exhibition Thank Υou for My Breaths! by Antonia Papatzanaki will take place on bus station shelters’ screens in Chelsea, New York and will be free and accessible to anyone. This project is made possible by the City Artist Corps Grants program, presented by The New York Foundation for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment as well as Queens Theatre.

Locations of bus stop screens in Manhattan:

West 34th Street & 8th Avenue

6th Avenue & West 49th Street

1st Avenue & E 87th Street.
