    Janet Ruttenberg’s paintings celebrate Central Park and those who gather within its green borders.

    Artist Janet Ruttenberg's love affair with Central Park has inspired her to use a variety of media—watercolor, oils, and video—to capture the natural and human beauty of this iconic New York landscape. Picturing Central Park will include 17 major works, many of them a monumental 15 feet in width, along with smaller pieces and photographs that reveal the artist's imaginative approach to her bold and sometimes fantastical work.
