Künstler's 'Coney Island' On Display in Traveling Exhibit
An iconic Künstler painting may be coming to a city near you. Mort Künstler's Coney Island will be on loan for the traveling exhibit Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland: 1861-2008.
From the museum:
Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland will be the first major exhibition to use visual art as a lens to explore the lure that Coney Island exerted on American culture over a period of 150 years. An extraordinary array of artists viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience, from its beginnings as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades of urban decline.
