Crystal Wagner, one of The Millworks artists, was in The New York Times June 15, 2015 for her installation piece in the Viacom building in Times Square.

Made of brightly colored plastic tablecloths and paper, the 3-dimensional installation, “Wild Efflux,” is 117 feet long and reaches 30 feet high. It is displayed in the lobby of the Viacom Building at 1515 Broadway as part of “Art at Viacom.” For The New York Times article on this vibrant project, please see“From Plastic Tablecloths, Three-Dimensional Art Grows”.

Originally from Baltimore, ND, Wagner is represented by the Hashimoto Gallery in San Francisco, CA. Her work has been featured in distinguished places around the world including the National Museum, Singapore; Galerie C.O.A, Montreal; Rymer Gallery, Nashiville, TN; and the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI.

Her unique style, alternative use of materials, and massive site-specific installations has earned her recognition in countless publications. Notably, she has been showcased in Art & Science Journal, Complex Art & Design Magazine, and in TUBE Magazine as one of “The Five to Watch: Artists.”

She was recently awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant for her work.
